What needed to know about basic H2S training

This course can be taken at the Specialized Training Center, which is located in Kherson (Ukraine) at 20 Ushakova avenue. This center meets all the international standards of offshore training grounds and also has excellent conditions for practical training.

  • Classes begin at 9 AM in the morning and last four hours. Students will have one coffee break. All the people who want to take the course must come 10-15 minutes before the start. It is very important to arrive on time and not be late.
  • Students need to have a valid document confirming the normal state of their health (results of medical examination). This is required because the training includes classes that provide significant physical and mental stress.

It is also possible to report any unfair treatment caused by teachers. To do both these things, you need to contact the administrator and write a special letter.
