Certification and Training

NofaMarsac is qualified to issue certificates for tanker vessels in order to comply with Dutch national and local port safety regulations, as well as provide training courses for ship and oil ring personnel.

In order to comply with Dutch national and local port safety regulations, tanker vessels are required to be certified before entering a shipyard or dry dock for planned maintenance or repairs. NofaMarsac is qualified to conduct inspections to issue these required certificates.

We also provide training courses on explosive gases testing, and confined spaces entry for ship crew members who regularly sail with dangerous goods, as well as oil ring personnel or process operators working in oil refineries and chemical plants.

Our courses satisfy the general acceptance conditions established in the Hobéon SKO Rules for Acceptance of Training Courses, as well as the requirements of SKO-Regeling SGT. NofaMarsac is also the sole training institute for marine chemists in the Netherlands.

We issue certificates and permits including health and safety certificates, "gas-free" certificates, and "hot work" permits when needed.
