Knowing how to deploy lifeboats quickly and safely from a ship or yacht can mean the difference between life and death.

A Fort Lauderdale school has opened a new facility to train and certify crews to do that, investing about $500,000 in the effort.

Maritime Professional Training this month debuted the facility featuring a special crane and state-of-the-art lifeboat on a corner of the Dania Beach site for retailers Nautical Ventures Group.

Manufacturers of lifeboats and related gear also can use the facility for testing of hooks, straps and other equipment.
