Mass Rescue Operations: IMRF’s First Subject-Matter Expert Course

Posted in General News

Our conferences are only one result of our MRO project. We have made available a wide range of material, including subject-specific guidance developed by our project team, at, and we run an ongoing series of MRO workshops, enabling emergency responders around the world to get together and focus on these most challenging of SAR cases.

Our MRO subject-matter training course is the next step. The first in what we expect will be a series of these courses will be held at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Sweden, on 14-16 June 2017, immediately after our MRO conference. It is now fully booked, but we hope to provide others, elsewhere in the world, to meet the obvious demand.

We believe that these courses will be of significant value in improving MRO preparedness. Learning outcomes for those attending will include an enhanced ability to identify, analyse and understand the problems, and to propose solutions. This learning can then be applied by attendees when they get back home.

It is important to note that these courses are not for everyone. They are primarily intended for senior managers such as national SAR Coordinators, other strategic planners, and trainers. A wide knowledge of maritime SAR systems and procedures, as set out in the International Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue (IAMSAR) Manual, is a prerequisite for attendance.

Places on each course must be strictly limited, to enable everyone attending to participate fully. If you are interested in future events, or you would like to enquire about sponsorship opportunities or IMRF membership, please e-mail, or telephone +44 (0)1569 767405.
