Training pool

Pool training at WarsashThe Academy utilises an off-campus pool facility for training students on the STCW personal survival techniques and proficiency in fast rescue boat initial courses and refresher training, where a number of ‘in water’ skills are taught before practical training is undertaken using a variety of liferafts and survival equipment.

Those undertaking offshore safety courses have to undergo a number of simulated helicopter waterborne landing and ditching scenarios in the helicopter underwater escape trainer (HUET), as well as being winched from a liferaft in a simulated rescue by helicopter.
