New offshore crane training grants global operational access

Maersk Training is proud to announce the launch of a new ambitious offshore crane operator programme designed to grant crane operators and their companies access to offshore lifting operations worldwide.

Access to Lifting Operations Worldwide

The comprehensive training programme targets crane operators at all levels and consists of three stages, each followed by strict qualification assessment including requirements on documented workplace experience in-between.

By completing all three stages, the course participant will become a qualified offshore crane operator able to administer any lifting operation unsupervised across the world, as the programme is DNV approved and complies with LOLER, API, BS7121-1 and BS7121-11 standards.

“In a market squeezed by declining margins, mobility of resources becomes more and more important. We have developed this offshore crane programme exactly to meet this demand, giving our clients the possibility of quickly relocating their most skilled crane operators and hereby cut costs” says Frank Holst Christoffersen, Chief Commercial Officer at Maersk Training.

Hoisting Training to New Heights

By utilizing highly advanced fully immersive offshore crane simulators alongside real-life onsite training, the Offshore Crane Operator programme bridges theory with practice in order to increase safety and operational performance. It can easily be customized to meet and further develop the competences of the individual candidate on any skill level.

“Candidates with little experience as well as more seasoned crane operators will greatly improve their knowledge and ability to operate an offshore crane both safely and efficiently” says Andrew Monie, senior crane instructor at Maersk Training.
