DNV certified Quality Assurance System
The Quality Assurance Document is intended as a minimum requirement offered by the Port Revel Training Center to ensure quality to users who wish to improve their ship handling skills by training. With over 50 years of experience and over 7000 pilots, masters and officers having attended the courses, Port Revel is the leader in this kind of training.
Adequate QA procedures are implemented at Port Revel in line with ISO 9001 requirements that Artelia (Sogreah) has been fulfilling since obtaining certification in 1995:
Safety Rules are in force at Port Revel. A specific document has been in place for a number of years and is regularly updated. In addition, annual visits from Sogreah / Artelia's Health, Safety and Working Conditions Committee ensure that safety and working conditions are rigorously monitored.
In 2014, Port Revel has been assessed, approved and certified by DNV under their standard 3.201 Learning Programmes (SeaSkill). Port Revel is the first manned model training center to obtain this certification.
Port Revel is a permanent forum of ideas, an ideal meeting place where information and experience can be exchanged, or as a pilot once pointed out:
"In regular life, a practising pilot is always alone. He has no-one around to comment on or discuss a particular manoeuvre. The only times when a manoeuvre is analysed and commented is after an accident, when there is an inquiry. And that always takes place in a mood of tension. What I appreciate at Port Revel is that pilots observe your work in a calm, dispassionate and therefore constructive climate."
