Australian Skills Training has conducted its first public Offshore Crane Course and Offshore Crane Endorsement in Darwin, NT. This is a significant development as there are currently limited opportunities in Australia for candidates to gain these qualifications.
The course was conducted using a Ships Crane onboard the CSL Wattle - a Store Lighter operated by Defence Maritime Services.
This first course was delivered by AST Trainer Tom Cambridge - an experienced Offshore Crane Operator and Trainer. The success of this training will lead to regular courses offered in 2011.

Australian Skills training recently completed a program of scaffold training onboard the FPSO Berge Helene offshore in Mauritania. The vessel is operated by BW Offshore and this was the third consecutive year that AST has provided training onboard.
In addition to training, the visits to the Berge Helene (and other BW vessels) have been an opportunity for AST to provide advice on current work practices, equipment requirements, and the competency of the crew. The feedback is very much appreciated by BW management and crew and provides an opportunity for continuous improvement.

Australia Skills Training recently delivered its first training course (Advanced Rigging) for PT Freeport in Indonesia. The Grasberg mine as it is known is one of the largest gold and copper mining operations in the world. Located 4000m above sea level in the rugged mountains of Irian Jaya (West Papua), the operation is complicated by high rainfall, steep slopes and security issues. The mine employs over 20,000 people and is the largest tax payer to the Indonesia government.
AST Trainer Ric Thomson completed a program of training in Jharkhand province in India this month. The training was conducted at a Cement Plant owned and operated by French company Lafarge. In total, 120 persons received training in Height Safety with an additional group of site personnel completing training in scaffold erection.
The training was aimed at improving awareness of height safety issues and implementing controls to work safely at height.
New work at the Lhoknga Cement Plant Re-Construction in Banda Aceh, Indonesia has demonstrated AST’s ability to provide technical expertise and know how in complex construction tasks.
AST is currently providing a scaffolding team in partnership with the Kaefer Group to erect complex scaffolds at the plant. The requirement came about due to a lack of expertise is this area and the companies insistence that these tasks be carried out by qualified personnel.
Under the supervision of AST Consultants a team of 10 scaffolders are onsite erecting scaffolds to enable external insulation and internal refractory bricks to be installed safely.
AST has recently completed an internal scaffold of the preheater shown above.
In addition to scaffolding expertise, AST has also been awarded a contract to supply (6) Safety Advisers to the project. These personnel will be mobilised to site in early Apr 2010 and will remain onsite until completion of the project in late 2010.
AST’s involvement in the Lhoknga project demonstrates our ability
to go beyond just training.
