Datum Marine welcomes you to Marine Training BC.COM, our website dedicated to helping you find the right course to get you out on the water!
The SVOP is a Transport Canada certification to operate a Small Commercial Boat less than 5 Tonnes; passenger or workboats
Marine Emergency Duties A3 is all about EMERGENCIES on boats such as fires, distress signals, man overboard, & more.
To Operate a Small Commercial Boat you will need the SVOP, MEDA3 and ROCM courses, you will also need Marine Basic First Aid
The SVOP is a Transport Canada captain's certification to operate a Small Commercial Boat, less than 5 Gross Tons, up to 12 passengers, less than 25 miles from shore.
The MEDA3 is NOT a medical or First Aid course! It is a course about what to do in an emergency on a boat and is required alongside the SVOP

"With the unique needs of staging a training course in the remote community of Klemtu we were looking for a training provider who had flexibility and experience in teaching to students with a wide range of learning styles. Datum Marine Services and instructor Chris more than fits the bill on both counts. Chris was fantastic with younger students and was able to keep the older students engaged and motivated. Well done guys!"
