Ezra launches offshore training centre in Singapore

Ezra launches offshore training centre in Singapore

Singapore: Ezra, Singapore-based offshore support and marine services firm on Tuesday launched its S$10m ($7.7m) maritime training institute aimed at enhancing safety and operational standards in offshore operations. EMAS Academy, a training and simulator centre located in Ezra's Singapore facility, includes cutting-edge simulation technology to train offshore industry players. "The centre can simulate offshore construction projects and works that we are going to do in future, plus whatever sub-sea work that we have to do," Lionel Lee, managing director of Ezra, said at a press conference. "The launch of EMAS helps reassure our clients that we tested our people before they go offshore, and that they will be able to react to the worse conditions possible," Lee added. The academy's first intake took place just over three months ago, with each training period spanning from three to seven days. The academy initially offers courses such as dynamic positioning, ship navigation and handling, engine room and resource management, while other new relevant programmes such as training in remotely operated vehicle operations will be added in future.
