The Operate Offshore Crane course is aimed at providing participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to operate an offshore crane safely and efficiently. An offshore crane may include the following crane types on an FPSO, MODU, Fixed platforms, dive vessels and FSU's:
- Slewing Pedestal
- Bridge and Gantry
- Mobile Slewing Crane
Generally the crane operator would liaise and cooperate with other members of the facility onboard team and would also respond to information from crew on a support vessel. Actions may include transfer of equipment to and from the support vessel; transfer of personnel between the facility and another vessel using appropriate approved equipment; and safe management of loads during diving operations.
