We have a reputation for providing superior Major Emergency Management (MEM) training to command personnel in the offshore oil and gas sector.
This training program is leadership intensive and with the purpose of inducing stress commensurate with actual emergencies at sea. Individual communication skills and personal command abilities are tested and evaluated throughout the course.
Utilizing our International Association of Drilling Contractor (IADC) accredited MEM program, our MEM team will train your offshore command team and onshore Emergency Response Team (ERT) in the best emergency tactics and in the art of command at sea which will enable them to mitigate any emergency they encounter. They will become "action oriented" leaders who will take decisive action on behalf of their crew and rig.
- All of our MEM instructors have actual seagoing command and control and command at sea experience.
Using original DCI criteria (“OIM – In Command”) and recommended industry standards ("OIM Controlling Emergencies"), our program is succinct and results oriented.
DCI formally assessed MEM programs require each candidate to pass three levels of emergencies, where each level is successively harder to control. Each candidate must receive a grade of “Competent” prior to ascending to the next highest level. Exercise scenarios are based on the following sample levels:
- Level A: laundry fire; galley fire.
- Level B: helicopter crash on deck; terrorist attack.
- Level C: blowout; high-impact collision (large scale loss of life, abandonment or capsize).
A minimum of six students is required for each course. It is recommended that two OIM, FOTL, or Ship Master candidates and four command center personnel (i.e. Senior Toolpusher, Chief Mechanic, Barge Supervisor, etc.) are provided for each class.
Exercise scenarios (based on actual case studies) include but are not limited to:
- Helicopter Crash
- Terrorist Strike
- Class Bravo Fire
- Electrical Fire
- Subsea Pipeline Failure
