Danes teaching maritime rescuing in Africa

Two SAR specialists from the Marine Guard is in the Comoros with a Nordic team of instructors led by the Navy. They teach 18 officers from eight East African countries in search and rescue at sea.
In the city of Moroni - the capital of the Comoros in the Indian Ocean - the captain lieutenants John Strøbæk and Anders Moller from the Marine Guard are just now starting to teach African students in search and rescue at sea.

The course lasts for two weeks and the Danish officers have worked to make updated training material so it can also be used when the students return home.

"We have created a book designed especially for the courses. There have been picked from the large official manuals and inserted a wealth of training tasks. It has proved to work very well, "says John Strøbæk.

The students and the countries’ SAR level is far from the Scandinavian standard. The students have very different maritime skills, and language is a challenge because some students only speak French or Arabic. An educational trick is to mix groups with different levels so that students can help each other.

The Nordic instructors, the director of the IMO and their co-director of the Seychelles has attracted considerable interest and commitment from the team's participants and from the environment in the Comoros. Both the press and TV have visited the course.
