OPITO – Offshore Lifeboat Coxswain Further Training (Twin Fall) – Simulator

OPITO – Offshore Lifeboat Coxswain Further Training (Twin Fall) – Simulator

The aim of the programme is to give Offshore Lifeboat Coxswains the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, and practice certain elements of their role which they cannot reasonably practise offshore.

How is the Course Delivered ?

The course is delivered using our state of the art Lifeboat Simulator.  The simulator is DNV GL approved.  It provides a fully immersive experience and allows Coxswains the opportunity to practice and demonstrate their skills and competence.  Assessment is conducted by trained and experienced assessors.

What is the benefit of using the simulator as opposed to real TEMPSC / lifeboat?

There are multiple benefits to using a simulator as opposed to real TEMPSC / lifeboats.

Training can be conducted at any time, and is not affected by external factors such as weather conditions, sea state, mechanical failure or even insufficient students to run a course.

Launching and recovery of real lifeboats can be a hazardous task and using simulators removes this risk.  Simulators can also be adapted to provide challenging conditions within scenarios i.e. low visibility, sea state, engine failure etc. were typically it would not be possible to do this.

Why simulation?

Simulation has been used in training / assessment for many years.  It is utilised by the airline industry to train aircraft pilots and assess their ongoing competence.  It is used by helicopter pilots to ensure there ongoing competence.  The nuclear industry uses simulation as part of ongoing training and competence of personnel.

Simulation is not a new concept, it is a new approach to training and assessing coxswains in a safe and controlled environment providing realist scenarios that could not be safely practiced during conventional training.

Is this training OPITO approved?

YES.  Were delegates meet the pre-requiste requirements, and also meet the stated learning outcomes of the training, delegates will be provided with an OPITO Certificate – Offshore Lifeboat Coxswain Further Training (Twinfall) 5182.

For more information please see the video or contact us if you have any questions.

Learning Outcomes

Delegates will have previously demonstrated their knowledge and skills and will have been assessed as competent Offshore Lifeboat Coxswains. During this programme you will be given the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and skills as a TEMPSC coxswain in aspects which you cannot reasonably practise offshore.

To successfully complete this Further Training Programme, you must be able to explain:

1. Correct use of the sea anchor

2. How to maintain the safety of the TEMPSC passengers

To successfully complete this Further Training Programme, you must be able to demonstrate:

3. How to check the external and internal integrity of the safety craft

4. How to remove mechanical restraints to enable launch of the TEMPSC

5. How to start the engine using both primary and secondary start systems

6. How to board passengers as quickly as possible

7. How to confirm the launch area is clear

8. How to brief the crew and obtain permission to launch

9. How to release the Lowering/launching mechanism

10. Securing the hatches and turning on the air and water spray protection systems

11. Clearing the installation on course for a safe area

12. Pacing alongside a vessel for transfer of personnel

13. Man overboard procedures if any personnel are in the water

14. How to tow another vessel

15. How to be towed by another vessel
