The training programme includes advanced airway management techniques; control of catastrophic bleeding; CPR protocols, including the use of automated external defibrillators (AED); and administration of gases, including oxygen and Entonox (gas and air).
The course has been developed in parallel with a wind turbine emergency trauma pack containing the same equipment used on the training course.
MHI-Vestas approached Maersk to develop the training course in order to train UK staff from director level to technicians.
"Advanced first aid skills are critical to personnel working in offshore wind. Many sites are over 20km from land and transit times mean medical assistance can take longer to arrive than working onshore," said MHI Vestas service director Wayne Mulhall.
The three-day course is available to employees from all companies in the wind energy sector.
