K38 Services & Course Descriptions

K38 Background - Fee Information

 

We Are Partners in the Maritime Community

K38 founded Personal Water Craft and Rescue Water Craft training in 1989. We are a maritime heritage company and are partners with leading boating organizations that endorse and manage occupational training and certifying boating requirements. Our goal? Revolutionize lifesaving and to train professional coxswains and crew, to lead innovation, standards and modern practices.

K38’s legacy is a thirty-eight year direct connection to Kawasaki®, Yamaha® and BRP® which goes further back to our humble beginning in 1979.  As a first generation operator by founder Shawn Alladio. Her knowledge base coupled with certified NSBC and NASBLA instructors have made K38 the leading subject matter expert (SME) and authority on Personal Water Craft worldwide. Our clients are our proof; we train the world’s elite operators

Historical

Our foundation lies in the value of partnerships; K38 LLC is based out of Florida and Kanalu-K38 is based out of Oah’u, Hawai’i, with Mr. Tom Pohaku Stone as our lead.  We partnered to join our waterman and watermen heritage into the nautical community and developed the only National standard compliant program.

K38 created and is the standard designer for Night Qualification training, we are the sole source provider for this type of operational need. We have been qualifying personnel since 1993 to date.

In 1996 K38 created a military training platform from a special request from U.S.M.C., EWTGPAC in Coronado, California. In direct relationship to the loss of a Marine during surf passage training.  This is the reason why the military began to use Personal Water Craft. K38 is the creator of MRV (Marine Reconnaissance Vehicle) design, and production, along with training packages with twenty-one years of frontline experience from mission profiles, to safety and equipment support.

Never Quit Challenge

Our signature Never Quit Challenges promote our Jet Ski® Program for long distance hardship adventures. We dedicate a significant amount of our business working with combat wounded veterans, Blue Star, Silver Star and Gold Star Families and public safety personnel.

K38 has been a National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) partner and instructor since 1998 to date.  We are currently the State of California service provider for the Division of Boating and Waterways, and P.O.S.T. Police Officer Standard of Training qualified.  Our international K38 Affiliates operate under the same guidelines and rules, per their country of origin.

Leading

As awareness of these boats increased beyond lifesaving, solutions were sought and K38 has been there every design phase leading SME support.  In 2011 K38 began developing and building custom Marine Reconnaissance Vessels (MRV) and are the creative behind Project Stingray and Project Jackal.

K38 has received top honors for the highest awards in the boating safety and law enforcement community. Inducted into 2 boating Hall of Fames!  In 2016 K38 was awarded the prestigious Hollister Award from the Western States Boating Law Administrators, we have received awards from the following:
