A NEW training course launched by Aberdeen-based C-MAR Group is claimed to help improve maintenance and reduce costly downtime offshore.
C-MAR provides global marine and energy services.
It said that, in partnership with Tullos Training, it had addressed an acute shortage of skilled hydraulic engineers and technicians with a comprehensive course in fault-finding and repair of fluid power systems.
It said the four-day practical learning programme for maintenance staff would provide a broad understanding and knowledge of these systems.
The course will be delivered by Graeme Bain, a hydraulic engineer at C-MAR Group.
C-MAR operations director Andrew Macdonald said: “We have tailored this programme for maintenance staff who are directly involved in breakdown, repair and fault-finding in hydraulic systems so that key members of the workforce can identify and rectify problems quickly, reducing the impact on a platform’s productivity.”
