E-training Services

HeliRiviera has developed an online foundation course for yacht crew.  The course has been created as a primer for HDA/HLA crew who are about to take the HeliRiviera Helicopter Fire and/or Helideck Safety courses, or as a refresher for crew who have already completed it.

Our e-training program enables crew members to study in their own time and then take an online test. The HeliRiviera e-training package is mobile-friendly, and only requires an internet connection.

We are always looking to expand our offering, so if you have any ideas for an online course that you would like to collaborate on, get in touch with us!
