Offshore Training Newcastle Gains OPITO Approval

Offshore Training Newcastle has been recommended for approval to run both the Offshore Emergency Response Team Member and Offshore Emergency Response Team Leader courses.

This news adds to the current portfolio of offshore courses that the centre is able to provide. Offshore Training Newcastle offers realistic training scenarios delivered by experienced instructional staff. 

Tim Oakes, Newcastle Airport Fire Training Academy Manager, said: "This recent audit has involved a lot of work and dedication in preparation and delivery from the OTN team. The site audit saw the OPITO Auditor following the instructional team through every element of the 4 day course. The OPITO auditor was satisfied that the programme followed and met the OPITO standards.

"The work does not stop here. We will continue to work with our partner AIS we intend to develop further courses, not just in the offshore sector."
