Training for novice Operators

After this training participants are able to operate the dredge and take adequate measures in regularly occuring situations such as stones or cavitation in the pumps, obstruction in the cutter or a broken discharge line.

Training for experienced Operators

As these participants already have the skills required to perform their job, the programme will be tailor-made to the themes they wish to learn more about. Various difficult operating conditions can be simulated and trained upon.
