Quadrants new Granville Island classroom hosts its first fire extinguisher training certification

Have you ever put out a live fire? Do you know when you should try a fire extinguisher and when you just need to get out? What should you be looking out for when you’re working in marinas and boatyards?

Level One MST Training starts off with fire extinguisher training certification that includes putting out a live fire.

Quadrant Marine Institute put out a big thank you to Skookum Yacht Services and Pilot Marine Yacht Services for making the much needed renovations for the new office and classroom on Granville Island at 1806 Maritime Mews.
