Based on extensive experience in providing Sea Survival training for offshore and maritime personnel, RelyOn Nutec has developed a training programme for the wind industry. During the GWO Sea Survival refresher course delegates refresh their knowledge and skills in survival at sea, including practical exercises on boat transfer, First Aid treatment, evacuation and survival techniques.
The objective of the GWO Sea Survival refresher module is, by online and practical training, to review and build on previously gained knowledge and skills to act safely and take the correct preventive actions in all aspects of offshore operations from shore to installation vessel or WTG, and vice versa; both during normal operation and in a given emergency in an offshore wind energy environment.
Prior to the practical training at a training centre, you need to complete the e-learning module. You can start the e-learning up to 4 weeks prior to the start date of the practical training and it needs to be completed 48 hours prior to the training at the training centre. To be able to complete the e-learning in time, you can sign up for this blended learning 4 days before the start date of the practical training.
Personnel who will be working in the wind industry or related fields, and will carry out their duties in a wind turbine environment, usually in physical contact with a wind turbine or offshore wind structure.
Personnel that perform job functions that have been risk assessed by their employer or workplace, where training according to one or more modules of the BST standard may mitigate the identified risks.
Delegates must hold a valid and in-date GWO Sea Survival certificate or Refresher certificate.
The online component of the course will provide you with the prerequisite knowledge and awareness required ahead of participation in the onsite practical sessions.
The certificate is valid for 2 years.
