Course Details

The “Offshore Installation Manager, Barge Supervisor, & Ballast Control Operator” course is being offered Gulf Coast Training Technologies in lieu of Coast Guard examination. As such, the course content is based on the subject material the Coast Guard deems necessary in their examinations as outlined in 46 CFR Part 11.920. Applicants for an Offshore Installation Manager, Barge Supervisor or Ballast Control Operator license are required to successfully complete USCG-approved comprehensive Stability, Fire Fighting, and Water Survival, and Well Control courses. Thus, the depth of coverage of these subject areas, while not as extensive as a particular comprehensive course, serves to reintroduce the candidate to the basic elements and knowledge already learned in the completed courses. Coverage on additional subjects (e.g. Rules of the Road, Weather, H2S, Radiophone, etc.) is designed to give the candidate a basic understanding of the subject material with emphasis placed on those areas especially important to the safety of the rig and its crew.
