Maersk Training, which started safety and technical training for the offshore industries in the late 1970s, will take over Transocean training centres.

It will now have centres in ten of the global maritime and offshore production hubs in the world, including Brazil, Denmark, Norway, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States along with facilities in West Africa.

Under the newly signed agreement, Maersk Training will be responsible for administration of all and delivery of certain training for Transocean’s offshore crew for a period of at least five years.

We have seen a substantial period of growth within safety and operational training, reflecting the oil and gas industry’s push forward in terms of safety and efficiency.”

Facts about Maersk Training

  • Maersk Training was founded in 1978 and is an independent business unit with worldwide training facilities open to all companies.
  • It aims to improve safety and performance and has a number of specialised training areas: Maritime, Oil & Gas, Wind, Survival, Safety & Security, People Skills, and Crane Operation.
  • Maersk Training has more than 200 different courses, based on the conviction that training should be as close to real life as possible. It has invested heavily in building advanced simulators to provide realistic training.

Safety focus
Good training and superior crew competence is becoming even more important as the oil and gas industry drills in ever harsher environments and deeper water, and Maersk Training is continuing to improve the skills of workers.

The business is expanding as it hosts ever more employees of other companies, which trust it to give their staff the necessary skills, and has invested in building advanced simulators to provide realistic training and deliver more than textbook theory.

Part of its success is a policy to recruit people from industry and training them to become instructors, rather than the other way round, and it targets a doubling of revenue and number of centres by 2020.
