Our GWO Sea Survival course is aimed at teaching personnel working in the wind industry – or related fields – the basics of survival in dangerous environments. Our clientele are those that work on wind turbines or offshore sites, so we cater our courses to the specific needs of the offshore industry.

Sea Survival courses are primarily delivered at our state-of-the-art training facilities, allowing trainees to get a truly immersive experience that best prepares them for real-world environments. Our world-class instructors are on hand to offer advice and show everyone the ropes, ensuring a timely, informative training session for all attendees. Each of our instructors has experience working on offshore sites, so when you choose CWind Training, you know you’re learning from the professionals!

Training can consist of first-time delegates and refresher delegates in the same classroom.
