Training Facility and Courses

As an original manufacturer, Norsafe understands the importance of proper training and hands-on experience with its LSA equipment.  Because most accidents are the result of poor maintenance or a lack of training, Norsafe Marine is currently constructing a state of the art training facility equipped with pier mounted boats, classroom, and staging area. This new program will be focused on operations, maintenance, and safety of LSA equipment. In addition, our rental fleet will be used as a training tool where trainees can gain valuable hands-on experience with our equipment in a safe and controlled environment.
