New Subsea and Marine Lifting Operations Course

New Subsea Lifting Course gives engineering personnel understanding of lifting dynamics in a subsea environment

The NSL Subsea and Marine Lifting Operations Course, is aimed at personnel who are either directly, or indirectly involved with Subsea Lifting Operations.  The course utilises best industry practices and guidance, drawing on NSL’s 25 years of experience.

Following the DNV guidelines for marine lifting operations, the course is practical and lecture based, covering lifting operations in dynamic conditions and for subsea applications.

The significant differences between general lifting operations and lifting operations in a marine and subsea environment are examined, lectures include an in-depth review of crane load charts, dynamic design factors, vessel de-rating charts, heave compensation systems, the differences between Static and Dynamic Loads and the limitations of the cranes given their specific design and capabilities. 

Any personnel involved in the subsea lifting process will benefit from the knowledge gained within this course.  By understanding the process, they will be able to anticipate the likely requirements of dynamic lifting operations thus increasing efficiency when dealing with subsea lifting projects across different departments or companies.

The course is delivered at NSL’s new training facility at D2 in Dyce, Aberdeen. The centre boasts an indoor three level rigging frame; a working at height area; confined space unit and man-riding winch tower as well as multiple classrooms and an outdoor area for crane based training.

Other courses currently delivered include: Rigging & Lifting; Banksman Slinger; Working at Height; Confined Space & Vessel Entry; and Lifting Operations Awareness. 

NSL’s training courses are supplemented with a variety of safety products including handbooks, posters, elearning, videos, animations and apps. The in-house graphics team work hand-in-hand with an experienced team of technical specialists to provide bespoke solutions for safety campaigns, incident investigations, product visualisation & promotion, tender documentation & presentations, technical illustrations and all other aspects of online and print media.
