Course joining instructions
Delegates are expected to report at the training centre at 07:30 AM local time or half an hour before the start of the course (depending on starting time). Delegates arriving too late have to make up for time lost (this, after notifying the client, will involve extra charges). Delegates need to bring their Personal Safety Logbooks and/or seaman’s book, for updating. These will be returned upon completion of the course. For various courses a medical certificate is mandatory. At arrival, the validity of the medical certificates will be checked.
Verification of identity
Every delegate must be able to prove his/her identity which is mandatory in the Netherlands. This can be done by government issued photographic identification or equivalent e.g. passport or identity document.
To obtain a valid OPITO certificate for OPITO approved courses, delegates have to be registered at the OPITO Vantage Central Register and Vantage POB.
The Training Centre will supply the necessary protective clothing, towels and equipment.
Attention is drawn to the fact that parts of our courses are of a physical nature. It is the employer’s responsibility to check that delegates have a valid medical examination required in the sector of employment, if required. Delegates are required to sign a medical fitness form in which they declare to be fit enough to participate in all parts of the course. FMTC can facilitate a medical and/or maritime offshore examination.
Course participants with special needs such as language problems, physical or medical disabilities and special attention regarding religion or culture must be stated on the booking application form. Additional cost will be charged to the company unless other arrangements have been made.
