Maersk Trainings helicopter and helideck simulators to support new lifelike offshore emergency trainings.

Two new offshore emergency courses have been developed with a simulator and helideck.

Maersk Training, which has a site in North Shields, has launched the OPITO Helideck Emergency Response Team Member Training (HERTM) and the OPITO 6 Day Combined Helideck and Team Member Training.

The courses begin this month at the company’s training centre in Scotland using a newly built helicopter simulator and helideck.

Managing director Stuart Cameron said: “By adding the HERTM to the company’s course list, Maersk Training is one step closer to being a one stop shop for all offshore wind and oil and gas training needs.

“The simulators will enable us to offer a better offshore emergency response learning experience which is not only realistic but also unique.”

Adrian Barron, operations manager, added: “Delegates will be taught to extinguish any helideck associated fires, search and rescue of casualties and communicate well.”
