Banksman and slinger course
During the training, participants will be provided with the necessary information and practical skills in load handling, suspension and safety maintenance to be followed when using equipment on land as well as at sea. The requirements and competencies are in accordance with ISO 23853:2018. The most commonly used cranes include: deck cranes, mobile cranes, HDS cranes, rail cranes and tower cranes.
These are very versatile machines that mining companies, among others, are equipped with. Thanks to interchangeable accessories, we can completely change their function and purpose. We can easily turn the loader into a lift or even a working platform - it is used in many working areas. By attending training in accordance with ISO 26676, you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to work with this equipment. A positive test result gives you the authority to operate the machine.
Painter-sandblaster on offshore platforms
During the course you will learn safe techniques for sandblasting, shotblasting and painting metal surfaces. You will gain knowledge of, among other things, corrosion control, maintenance, which is used in the marine and land-based industries. After completing the course, you will easily perform a corrosion inspection using the appropriate equipment. Upon completion of the course, you will obtain a certificate of compliance developed by the Norwegian oil industry NORSOK M-501 for petrochemical companies.
Mountaineering in offshore and onshore work
We organise courses on working at height with rope and construction access. During the class you will learn knot tying techniques and how to use them safely. The training prepares you to work at height and protect yourself and the environment around you. After completing the courses, you will be able to navigate ropes and scaffolding with ease. The curriculum is aligned to the current BS 8454 standard.
