1.9A Banksman Offshore – Basis
This 3-day practical Banksman offshore training is specifically designed for operational personnel on ships and/or oil platforms involved in hoisting operations. The purpose of this Banksman training is for participants to perform hoisting operations safely, responsibly and efficiently in cooperation with the crane operator.
Please note that: If you want to obtain the NOGEPA Banksman offshore 1.9 certificate, we advise you to register for the Rigging & Slinging training for Riggers & Banksmen. Compared to the Banksman training you will have to follow just a few additional modules and you can obtain not only the NOGEPA 1.9 certificate but also the internationally recognized DNV certificate. This Riggers training can also be found in the Rigging & Slinging training offerings.
