We have designed this course for:
Staff and operators new to offshore support operations, such as transport and materials management staff, logistics planning staff, offshore materials coordinators, secretarial staff and similar groups. It is also suitable for more experienced staff who would benefit from a broader understanding of how a supply base works.
NOTE: this course may not be suitable for experienced mariners, or staff employed in marine export terminals or tanker operations, unless they need to understand how a marine support base connects offshore and onshore elements in the supply chain.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand how marine transport supply bases operate
- Identify the operational and environmental considerations in managing a marine supply base
- Be aware of the need for safe handling, loading, stowage and offloading of different cargoes
- Initiate appropriate, prompt and informed action in the event of emergencies
- Identify opportunities to improve marine supply base operations
- Demonstrate an understanding of ship handling and operations
- Understand ship and container construction
- Apply generic HSE operating norms within the particular regimes they operate in
- Understand the operation of international trade.
The venue for this course is in the City of Norwich, to enable a site visit to the local offshore supply bases in Great Yarmouth as part of the course.
This course is available for in-house delivery if required.
This course will be conducted in the English language.
