Customised training programmes

Having a group of professionals with many years of experience at sea and in developing and conducting training programmes, we can offer training programmes customised to suit the client's requirements.

North Sea Service is able to develop taylor-made programs and training onboard your vessel.

The process usually involves:

  • Interaction with the client to understand the objectives.
  • Collecting relevant materials required over and above that which is available at North Sea Service knowledge base.
  • Visit to client's vessels to study the equipment/system and have discussions with the staff.
  • Preparation of the course material, vetting by the clients and conduct of the programme.


Design and Development

Comprising a team of professionals, the training design groups work closely with the end users, incorporating practical solutions where needed. Training gaps are identified from discussions with target groups and guidelines from standard model courses all form the input necessary for designing the programmes.Practical sessions are integrated with theoretical discussion where possible to ensure a better understanding of concepts.

North Sea Service, conducting sea trials

A sea trial is the testing phase of a new build ship . It is also referred to as a "shakedown cruise" by many naval personnel. It is usually the last phase of construction and takes place on open water, and it can last from a few hours to many days.

Sea trials are conducted to measure a vessel’s performance and general seaworthiness. Testing of a vessel’s speed, maneuverability, equipment and safety features are usually conducted. Usually in attendance are technical representatives from the builder (and from builders of major systems), governing and certification officials, and representatives of the owners. Successful sea trials subsequently lead to a vessel’s certification for commissioning and acceptance by its owner.

Although sea trials are commonly thought to be conducted only on new-built vessels (referred by shipbuilders as 'builders trials'), they are regularly conducted on commissioned vessels as well. In new vessels, they are used to determine conformance to construction specifications. On commissioned vessels, they are generally used to confirm the impact of any modifications.

Sea trials can also refer to a short test trip undertaken by a prospective buyer of a new or used vessel as one determining factor in whether to purchase the vessel. North Sea Service, can offer crew for sea trials and provide customers with advice. With a pool of certified engineers, Bridge Officers and deck crew, North Sea Service, can conduct and monitor the sea trial. (we have crew with licence of competence for sea going and Inland navigation).
