Neven’s Seafood Trials- Filming with NMCI Services

Posted: September 16, 2019

NMCI Services extended a warm welcome to Neven Maguire and his crew to the college today. Neven is one of Ireland’s best-loved chefs. The restaurateur and media personality was filming for his upcoming series, Neven’s Seafood Trails. This seven part series will be aired on RTE1 early 2020. Neven experienced the training mariners undergo here at the NMCI in our 360-degree full mission bridge simulator, sea survival pool and fire yard. Neven’s sea legs did not let him down!

We’re looking forward to seeing the show next year and wish Neven and his team the very best of luck with the show!

Neven is pictured with Head of NMCI Services Jim O’Byrne, and SEFtec NMCI Offshore Operations Manager Ray Johnston.

Medical Update from OPITO regarding BOSIET/HUET/FOET with CA-EBS

Posted: August 16, 2018

Good news for those holding seafarer’s medicals. These can now be used when undertaking OPITO BOSIET/HUET/FOET with CA-EBS.

An additional HSE exemption has been granted to enable those workers who hold an ENG1 medical certificate of fitness to undertake the same in-water offshore survival training as those holding an Oil and Gas UK certificate of medical fitness for offshore work

This means that delegates will be required to produce one of the three certificates outlined below:-

  1. Produce a valid, unexpired Oil and Gas UK (OGUK) offshore medical certificate confirming the delegate’s fitness for offshore work.

OR

  1. A valid, unexpired, medical certificate of fitness to work at sea.

OR

  1. A valid, unexpired offshore medical certificate issued by a body outside of the UK which is recognised as equivalent to the OGUK medical certificate of fitness for offshore work.

In addition to the above the delegate will be required to produce:-

A certificate of fitness to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training issued by a registered OGUK examining doctor.

OR

In the case of a Seafarers Medical with restrictions, produce a statement from an appropriate registered practitioner that the restriction or condition does not result from a respiratory or ENT condition and there is no absolute contraindication to the shallow water delegate’s participation in the training.

AND

On the date on which the delegate is to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training, and prior to entering the water in which the training takes place, the delegate gives to the OPITO-approved Centre a statement, that to the best of the delegate’s knowledge and belief, the delegate has no (current or past) medical condition which makes the delegate unfit to participate in the training.

For any queries please contact Gillian or Chloe on + 353 21 4335609

#CleanSeas Newsletter Competition

Posted: July 18, 2018

GAC Training & Service Solutions

Turn the tide against plastic.

Reduce Reuse.

There is no Planet B.

Say no to single use plastic.

These are all important statements, and statements that are being said more and more with each passing day. The fight to save our oceans against increasing plastic pollution is growing in importance. People have come to realise that yes, just one person’s actions can make a difference. According to the UN Environment each year eight million tonnes of plastic leaks into the ocean. By 2050 an estimated 99% of seabirds will have ingested plastic. Saying no to plastic straws, bringing reusable mugs to cafes, refilling your sports bottle as opposed to buying single use water bottles are all ways we can take action.

 

Visit http://cleanseas.org/take-action to get more ideas on what you can do and take the pledge for #CleanSeas. GAC has agreed to support the UN Environment #CleanSeas campaign through taking direct action to reduce single use plastics in the company.
