OPITO Grants Further Approval to Offshore Training Company

North East training company Survivex further strengthened its reputation across the global oil and gas sector by gaining additional OPITO approval for training courses.

 
PRLog - Dec. 8, 2011 - SCOTLAND, U.K. -- Having secured industry-recognised accreditation earlier this year for offshore survival, MIST and forklift skills training the trail-blazing company, which has yet to celebrate its first birthday, has followed this up with further accreditation from offshore industry standards body OPITO for helideck operations.

Following a recent audit by OPITO, this week Survivex received approval for a Helicopter Landing Officer (HLO) course.  Training for personnel, who have responsibility for offshore helideck operations, takes place at Survivex’s 53,000 square foot facility at Dyce, Aberdeen, and is available to both companies and self-sponsor individuals.  In an industry where safety comes first, a skilled and knowledgeable work force is fundamental to maintaining a competitive edge, making this recent accreditation for Survivex relevant to the industry as a whole.

The Company has been creating waves since moving into its state-of-the-art premises in May this year.  Standing true to Survivex’s moto ‘A new vision in training for energy’, Managing Director George Green aims to set standards for offshore survival and industrial skills training.  “This most recent accreditation further demonstrates Survivex’s position as a leading global training provider.  We are now one of only a handful of companies worldwide that have achieved OPITO approval for this course and we believe that this demonstrates our commitment to helping the global energy industry create a safe and skilled workforce.

Individuals and Companies who choose Survivex for their Helicopter Landing Officer training can rest assured that they are receiving the very best industry approved training from the best instructors out there.   We’re not looking to match other providers, rather we aim to raise the bar of the training industry in general and this recent award represents another step towards our goal”.

Survivex is the newest name in energy training offering a wide range of courses on-site, at customer’s premises and from any offshore location.  Within the facility at Dyce are 2 pools equipped with helicopter underwater escape training apparatus, purpose built rigging frames, and a banksman slinging training area, as well as a selection of fully equipped meeting and training rooms.
