Training approved by DNVGL

As the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PTIL) increasingly reveals non-conformities related to training of lifeboat and MOB boat crew, Norsafe Academy is pleased to be the first course provider in the market to receive the DNVGL certification for maritime training providers.

The Norwegian Maritime Authority have set the DNVGL standard as a requirement to offer IMO/STCW courses. The goal is to ensure the quality of development and delivery of courses and training programs.

“The objective shall ensure that programs and courses being offered within the maritime and offshore sector are properly designed, contain clear objectives as to results, are carried out by qualified instructors and are evaluated and improved in line with market demands and experience” DNV GL AS says in their scope.

The IMO document MSC.1/Circ.1206/Rec.1 titled “Measures to prevent accidents with lifeboats” concludes that five out of seven reasons for lifeboat accidents are related to the crew’s lack of knowledge. Norsafe has spent considerable resources on developing lifesaving appliances according to the latest standards, and measures to improve the competence of crew onboard ships and offshore installations is an important next step to enhance the safety of seafarers.

“We are taking our responsibility seriously. As a leading manufacturer of LSA and service provider, we possess the highest expertise in the market. It is important for us to be able to share this knowledge with our customers to improve their safety”, says Rossland.

Norsafe is proud to be the only total supplier of life saving appliances, including certified equipment, certified service and now certified training through Norsafe Academy.
