Classroom Education

Wagner Education Center 

More Info

Courses are presented at the beautiful Wagner Education Center at the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle. On the shores of South Lake Union, The Wagner Education Center is an amazing space to learn.  You needn’t be a boater to attend, as the material crosses over to all aspects of Medical Emergencies whether on land or afloat. These classes are essentially the same “base material” as would be offered in a standard Adult First Aid, CPR/AED course however with a “list” to the boater to cover those typical sudden illness’s and injuries we see at sea.
