Helicopter Operations Initial Training - HLO/HDA

Course Overview

Course Duration: 18 Hours or at your own pace.

Price: R7650 Per Person.

The aim and objectives of the Offshore Helideck Operations Initial Training Program are to equip the delegate with the initial knowledge, understanding and skills required to perform the roles of Helicopter Landing Officers (HLOs) and Helideck Assistants (HDAs) safely and effectively. This Level 1 Program is the theoretical component of the training program.

On completion of online training (Level-1), the delegate will need to complete a comprehensive onsite development program and practical workplace assessment (Level-2). This will be completed by the Duty Holder in accordance with the detailed criteria and syllabus that we provide. Please contact us should you wish to register for the practical (Level 2) component.

Additional training, as determined by the Duty Holder, in offshore site-specific elements is required before appointment to the HLO and/or HDA role.
