Re: Approved Medcial training courses and schools
I've heard it is great training, but I doubt that it carries much weight with employers.......
Acadia just outside of Lafayette Louisiana used to offer the PIC, and they train a great many medics for the rigs....I audited the class years ago and it was top notch.
I'm curious if this has been suggested by, and or required by your company, as the STCW rules concerning the requirement seem vague.
On my boat in Brasil we were required to have tons of injectable drugs, but no one on board was required to have any training, and didn't know the first thing about how, or when to use them.
I'm still currently licensed as a paramedic in Texas, so I've seen some good and some not so good information and instructors in this area .
