The Stage 2 Offshore Crane Operator course aims to give participants the knowledge required 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 by utilising an offshore crane to conduct deck lifts under supervision. Offshore crane operator stage 2 training should follow as soon as is practicable after Offshore Crane Operator Stage 1 training.
The course includes both theory and practical components, with participants undertaking practical exercises including operation of crane simulations to ensure familiarity with procedures, equipment and crane safety systems.
