AIMS AND OUTCOMES
The Stage 2 Offshore Crane Operator Re-Assessment course aims to give participants the knowledge required to continue to operate an offshore crane in a safe and efficient manner. This is achieved using a bank of scenarios on the offshore crane simulator or offshore crane by demonstrating experience with offshore deck lifts in an offshore environment.
