MacGregor Norway celebrated its 200th training course last week.

Since the start in 2007, more than 1,600 people have attended MacGregor Norway’s training courses. Most have been organized at the Arendal headquarters, but instructors have also travelled to Newfoundland, Rio de Janeiro, Houston and Kuala Lumpur.

Among the attendees during the last 14 years are people from countries such as Norway, Sweden, Poland, Russia, Japan, India, Canada, Denmark, the Philippines, the United States, Brazil and more. Training is done for operators from 15 different MacGregor clients.

“Courses typically run for 2-2.5 days with a focus on operation and maintenance,” says Course Instructor Jan Finckenhagen.
