Norsafe offering 'train the trainer' for lifeboat systems

(ROSENDAL, Norway) — Norsafe, a global life-saving marine systems manufacturer, is offering a specialized “train the trainer” course in life-saving appliances (LSA) aimed at instructors and trainers working in nautical schools and training centers.

The course covers operational and maintenance training on freefall lifeboat systems; conventional lifeboats covering davits, winches and hook systems; and rescue boat systems.

Training takes place at Norsafe’s training facility at Rosendal, Norway, and will include accident evaluation procedures and updates on International Maritime Organization and European Union regulations.

“A trainer or teacher at a maritime school or training center should know the latest information in LSA. This is particularly true regarding freefall lifeboats which have gone through major design changes in the last 10 years,” said Michael Rossland, vice president of Norsafe Academy.

“Our course gives hands-on experience using the latest equipment. This will give trainers the confidence to pass on this knowledge when conducting their own training sessions. Furthermore, Norsafe will issue all participants, that have successfully completed this course, with documentary proof of their LSA competence,” he added.    

“Train the trainer” courses will be available from May 2017.

Limited spaces are available. Book now by emailing: or phoning +47 91 91 36 50.
