This is a Basic to Intermediate Level course and will introduce participants to the theoretical and practical operations for safely moving a Jack-Up unit from one location to another.

Practical simulations will be carried out throughout the Marine Operations theory training, enabling the student to experience and practice in real time, issues that can occur during Jacking operations. Several exercises will be simulated, demonstrating rig move operations, preloading, and jacking operations in real time.
