Whole Body Vibration

FRC International Whole Body Vibration (WBV) Awareness Courses, recognised by The Nautical Institute, are relevant to all organisations operating planing craft. See WBV Website

This includes all military, search & rescue, government agencies, local authorities, police, wind farm, oil & gas, thrill ride, charter and all organisations operating planing craft.

The aim of FRC WBV Awareness Courses is for attendees to return to their organisations with the knowledge to make informed decisions regarding WBV and safer marine operations.
