Pre-Requisites

It is important to note that whilst there are no pre-requisites for attending HDA Initial, HLO Initial & HDA HERTM courses, there are still other training requirements for working in these roles offshore and the responsibility for these falls to the operator and not the training provider. See note: Workplace Experience & Competence Assessment, below.

Workplace Experience & Competence Assessment

In addition to onshore-based training, there is now a requirement for HDA’s and HLO’s to be assessed onsite in their roles. Petans can provide this onsite training by qualified instructors/assessors for customers where necessary @ £500 +VAT per day based on a maximum of 10 delegates.
