Training and exercises

Our training is always based on a combination of theory and practical exercises.

The introduction of the SECurus and SeaCOP has changed the way oil spill clean-up, Search and Rescue (SAR) and Surveillance and Security operations are managed and documented. Our tools and operational methodology enables more oil to be combated in a shorter amount of time, in addition to more efficient SAR operations. All to ensure the safety and integrity of the personnel, environment and vessel.

Our training philosophy is based on a combination of theory and practical exercises, and we’ll give you the skills to handle the equipment and the operational know-how to interpret the data and make faster, more accurate and documented decisions. At Aptomar and at North Cape Maritime Training Centre, we have simulators that are used during practical exercises, in order to achieve the operational knowledge the users will need for their daily work.

SECurus and SeaCOP training

At NORBIT Aptomar headquarters i Trondheim, we have several simulators that are used during the practical exercises, in order to achieve the operational knowledge the users will need for their daily work and emergency operations.

In 2015, NORBIT Aptomar together with Transas, announced the creation of the world’s most advanced oil spill combating simulator at the North Cape Maritime Training Centre in Norway. The centre offers life-like training for rapid-oil response for both onshore and offshore personnel, the simulator attempts to provide a platform to change the way in which oil spills are managed and rectified, decreasing the reaction time and improving safety procedures for personnel and the environment.

SECurus Certification Course

The goal with the certification courses is to ensure an understanding of the SECurus system’s functionality and possibilities in addition to show how this system can be used in case of a variety of emergency situations. This is essential operational knowledge for the end user, operator and onshore oil spill response management, but also for personell in charge of the organization’s emergency plans.

Training Courses

NORBIT Aptomar offer both class room-based courses and training courses at the customer locations. Be it on a vessel bridge for SECurus, or in an Operations Room for SeaCOP, the same training is delivered as that in the classroom based sessions.

Our overall goals are to:

  1. Increase preparedness in case of an incident by efficient use of the SECurus, and make the crews comfortable with using SECurus in different situations.
  2. Ensure that we get competent SeaCOP users that have confidence if an incident should occur. The end users should know how and when to use the SeaCOP system, and be able to adapt this into the teams processes and procedures
  3. Provide customised training on the occasions where the standard training is not sufficient. For more information please email: aptocademy@aptomar.com

Common for all the courses are our training philosophy and methods that are based on learning by doing, with high emphasis practical exercises in addition to basic theory.
