Samson Tiara Gets Green Light to Open Training Facility

Samson Tiara has received OPITO approval for its new training facility in Senipah, Kalimantan, Indonesia. This will mark the first time internationally accredited safety training will be available in the area.

The OPITO approval for the Senipah training facility covers 4 courses: Tropical Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (T-BOSIET), Tropical Further Offshore Emergency Training (T-FOET), Travel Safely by Boat (TSBb) and Further Travel Safely by Boat (FTSBb).

Mr. David Donaldson, Managing Director of P.T. Samson Tiara commented, "We are pleased to continue our tradition of being a company of firsts. Samson Tiara was the first to offer properly simulated H.U.E.T training in Indonesia in 1994 and continued on to become the first to offer OPITO’s internationally recognized training in Indonesia in 2004. Now, in 2011, we are proud to be the first to offer OPITO training to the rapidly growing Oil & Gas sector in Kalimantan."

This new facility, approximately sixty kilometers from Balikpapan, will allow P.T. Samson Tiara to provide high quality, internationally accredited offshore safety and survival training to the hundreds of companies operating in the area, training that until now was only available from our facility in Cilegon, Banten.
