Iqarus Launches New Training Center for Offshore Medics



Healthcare and medical solutions company Iqarus has launched a new training center for offshore medics, emergency response teams and people who work in remote and challenging environments.

The site, in Dyce, Aberdeen, is located next to a fire training centre and includes more than 4,000 square feet of training rooms, classrooms and instructor offices. The new site will host bespoke medical and hostile environment training programs, delivered by Iqarus’ team of eight full time trainers, for remote and offshore medics. Over $1 million has been invested to design, build and construct the center.

“The Aberdeen center will expand training provision for North Sea users and those working in global locations. As businesses launch operations into more challenging operating environments, complex risks can arise for workers and our bespoke training is designed to equip them with the appropriate level of knowledge and skills to help keep them safe,” Ged Healy, executive director of training and development at Iqarus, said.
