What kind of on-board LSA training does the MCA strongly emphasise as being particularly important?

Training in the handling of totally enclosed and partially enclosed motor propelled lifeboats fitted with on-load release gear and in certain cases with self-contained air support and water spray systems. (The emphasis is due to the complexity of the equipment. )

Where on-board training cannot be given in the use of certain items of LSA because of practical considerations, what arrangements should be made?

What special training must be given to crew members allocated specific key tasks for the preparation, launching and handling of lifeboats, rescue boats, liferafts and marine evacuation systems?
