The course content has been devised by Renewable UK to provide the basic safety training and competence required by personnel intending to work in the offshore wind energy sector.
The course is designed to address the significant health and safety issued that relate to vessel transit and transfer under the jurisdiction of UK health and safety law. It is intended to ensure a common approach to basic training delivered by an approved training provider under controlled conditions.
The two day course will introduce the delegates to the health and safety law governing off shore wind operations as well as an overview of the UK and European industry and facilities under construction. The other areas covered include vessel transfer theory and practical training and vessel emergencies theory and practical.
The Marine Offshore Safety Training Centre (MOST) is superbly equipped to deliver the training with a turbine simulator and transfer vessel to ensure that realistic conditions can be achieved in a controlled environment.
Students will gain a GWO certificate as well as a Renewable UK certificate.
As there will be a requirement of the delegates to undertake marine survival practical training which will include swimming, jumping from height and climbing, all delegates must declare themselves fit.
