About the course

With the increase in demand for lifting services and, consequently, for specialized labor for related activities, it is necessary to improve lifting professionals capable of safely designing operations.

Otherwise, the risk of problems and accidents in operations is considerably increased, almost always with high material and human damages.

In this course, the student will learn to develop offshore lifting projects for routine operations on floating units.
