Transport Canada changes to Marine Emergency Duties certifications
Transport Canada has introduced new Marine Emergency Duties (MED) certifications. All existing MED domestic certifications will still be valid.
- MEDA3 will become SDV-BS (Small Domestic Vessel Basic Safety)
- MEDA1 and MEDA2 will be replaced with just one certification – DVS (Domestic Vessel Safety)
Datum Marine Services Ltd will start to offer the new SDV-BS certification sometime in 2019. The SDV-BS will still be a 1-day course (8-hours).
