Perenco: Contractors Train Workers on Survival at Sea

When we told we had to come for a training course, I never imagined it was going to be this tough. It is a very challenging training and the trainer too is wonderful, he is a coach, a guide, a teacher and knows how to motivate people. I must commend his effort especially during the pool exercises, evacuating the installation, breathing resistance, boarding the life raft and the back stroke. He was with us, coaching, instructing and encouraging us. He is one of the best instructors I have ever had”.
