Reflex Marine Meets Demand for FROG Training

press release
Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Following the success of the inspection and maintenance training courses delivered in 2011, Reflex Marine will be hosting a new program of courses this year.

 

The first week long course will run in Aberdeen starting on the 26th March 2012. These training courses have been growing in popularity as more and more companies recognise that proper inspection and maintenance of their FROGs helps to maintain their working integrity over their whole field life.


The aim of the inspection and maintenance course is to supply candidates with the expertise to ensure operational integrity and safety of Reflex Marine products using correct and up to date maintenance procedures. The course is aimed at workshop mechanics, testers, and rigging and lifting inspectors for oil operators and their service providers. On completion candidates will be issued with a certificate of competence, valid for two years.


Technicians will learn how to inspect and maintain the three, six and nine-man versions of the FROG transfer device according to the recommendations set out by Reflex Marine. With a range of available modules, the course will include a review of the design background of each model, legislation, competence, critical parts inspection, checklists, best practice, a hands-on rebuild of each transfer device and a multiple choice test.


A short, half day familiarisation course is also being hosted, and is designed to give an overview of risks associated with personnel transfer, industry best practice and industry guidelines. Candidates will become proficient in the use Reflex Marine products, covering both routine and emergency use (stretcher) as well as an overview of integrity management.


Alongside this training program, Reflex Marine is in the process of establishing a worldwide network of formally accredited service centres, where technicians, certified by Reflex Marine will be able to ensure a uniformly high quality and standard of servicing. The company has already established strong working relationships with accredited service centres in Norway, UAE and Canada and is looking to expand the number of centres in 2012.


The last training course hosted by Reflex Marine in 2011 saw attendance from delegates as far afield as Azerbaijan, Singapore, Dubai, Nigeria and Denmark. Delegates included oil and gas operators, wind farm construction companies, crane operators and service companies. The course was a huge success with all the delegates providing excellent feedback on the new skills they had learnt, most notably the hands on experience gained from dismantling and reassembling the different units.  The course also gave great insight for Reflex Marine staff to find out directly from delegates how they deploy the FROG in the field.


James Cryan, Reflex Marine’s logistics and client support manager said: “The new Reflex Marine training courses are an invaluable tool for clients using the FROG and TORO personnel transfer capsules to ensure operational integrity and safety, and to get the most out of using the units. Clients benefit from direct OEM expertise”. Reflex Marine is planning to run another training event, in September 2012, which will also cover the TORO transfer device.
