The CSBC holds both one day Cold Water Workshops and two day Instructor Courses at various locations across Canada.

The instructor course will qualify those who are currently involved in marine rescue and response on how to teach first responders to properly deal with hypothermic victims. Either Dr Gordon Giesbrecht, (aka Professor popsicle), Professor of Thermophysiology at the University of Manitoba or another trained professional, will take the instructor/students through a two day course to provide them with the information and knowledge necessary to help first responders understand the important issue and to better prepare them to deal with hypothermic victims. Course materials including an instructor handbook and powerpoint presentations to be used for subsequent Cold Water Workshop is included.
