Training in Aberdeen, UK
MacGregor has a training centre in its Aberdeen office in the UK to deliver specialists skills and competencies to its engineers and customers.
Aberdeen office is the leading
launch and recovery service provider within MacGregor’s Global Lifecycle Support division. Central to the training centre has been the creation of a bespoke, real-time davit training rig, which replicates the operation of onboard work boat and lifeboat launch and recovery davit systems including towing boom operation.
The company delivers its crew training sessions from its operation in Peterseat Drive, Altens through a blend of technical theory and practical training. Certification is awarded once attendees pass a competency test and the training programmes are designed to be offered to groups of up to five crew members at a time. MacGregor engineers attend the centre from across the world to undertake the in-depth training and development programme, which is supported through the creation of a new building competence centre at the company’s manufacturing plant in Norway. The high level of service training required to be a world-class specialist is key to the programme foundation, which can take three years to complete to ensure engineering meet the high level of standards expected.
Practical elements of the training will be undertaken by highly experienced trainers.
· Technical davit engineering and inspector training
· Practical hydraulics training
· Fault finding training (to help crew members rectify minor problems that may arise while at sea)
