TRAINING


WORLD CLASS FACILITIES


The college offers an almost unique range of training facilities and safety courses to meet the needs of workers in the industry. A jewel in the crown is its Environmental Survival Tank (pictured) which has long been recognised as one of the UK’s best training facilities of its type, offering realistic sea conditions including waves, rain, wind and varying light all in controlled safety.


ENVIRONMENTAL SURVIVAL TANK


Ian said: “Our environmental survival tank enables us to work with our partners to deliver GWO Sea Survival training alongside STCW Personal Survival Techniques. It’s fully equipped with a marine transfer ladder replicating the access facilities workers are going to encounter when they visit a wind turbine, sub-station or offshore work vessel.” He added: “Its versatility also enables us to run product trials for clients including rescue devices, life-saving appliances and immersion suits - there is no better way to gain confidence in new equipment than trying it out in a safe and controlled environment.”


EMERGENCY RESPONSE FOR OFFSHORE WIND


ECC offers a series of scenario based offshore wind emergency response training and assessment programmes for Marine Coordinators, Control Room Operators and windfarm managers. Ian continued: “We work directly with windfarm developers to test both their emergency response plans and their teams to ensure they are effective and work seamlessly together.”


The college has a dedicated emergency


response facility which it can modify to reflect individual windfarm control room facilities and emergency command centre systems creating a highly realistic training and assessment environment.


ECC CAN HELP


From MCA and RYA approved marine radio communications to Nautical Institute approved dynamic positioning training, ECCs training portfolio is wide ranging. Ian concluded: “The wind industry is fascinating and it’s not always the usual courses we get asked for, we’re about to launch a new one- day offshore windfarm navigational awareness course for marine


coordinators and managers so that they better understand the conditions that crew transfer vessels encounter. “It includes the impacts of tides, weather and sea conditions and the limitations arising from the marine environment – this is a concept conceived through a ‘corridor conversation’ with managers attending a GWO Basic Safety Training at our centre who identified a gap in their team’s competence profile that we could help fill”.
