Developing competence and reducing risk

Training and competence assessment

Having worked in the offshore industry since 1975, Sparrows Group has unrivalled experience in offshore lifting operations, competence assessment and training.

Our goal is to help build a strong safety culture in the workforce, reducing the frequency and severity of incidents which could cause harm to people or property.

We are the only company in the world to offer onshore coaching in a real offshore pedestal crane and a crane simulator.

Delivered by our experts who are all staff and have hands-on experience in their fields, our programmes enable and ensure students reach Sparrows Group’s exacting and industry-leading standards.

Training programmes are accredited to ISO:9001, OPITO and BFPA in the UK and API RP2D in the US.

As well as offering a number of standard courses, unlike many other training providers, we offer bespoke training solutions that meet our clients exact objectives. We can deliver our training at your location, both offshore and onshore.
