The course has been developed by Newcastle based Maersk Training and lasts approximately ten weeks. The Diploma covers essential safety skills people need to work in an offshore wind turbine environment. Everyone who successfully completes the course will receive a Maersk Training Diploma in Staying Safe in the Wind Turbine Environment (Onshore and Offshore).
