Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel (ERRV) is a purpose-built rescue vessel attending offshore installations. An ERRV combines good maneuverability, enhanced survivor reception and medical after-care facilities, state of art navigational/communications equipment and rescue craft capable of operating in severe weather. Many ERRVs are fitted with both daughter craft (DC) and fast rescue craft (FRC).

The aim and objectives of the ERRV Crew Initial Training Shipboard Operations (ITSO) training program are to equip the delegate with the initial knowledge, understanding and skills required to perform the role of ERRV crew.


This program is designed to meet the initial training and assessment requirements for all prospective ERRV crew members excluding Chief Engineers and Masters, as there is no requirement for them to undertake the training.

The purpose is to set out the initial Emergency Response training requirements for all prospective ERRV crew members, which will be conducted onshore. This is only part of a broader training program, which includes ongoing onboard training and assessment.

  • Duration: Approx. 35 hours (5 days)
  • Validity: Continuous training and assessment required through Ongoing Onboard Development and Training Program for ERRV Masters and Crew (OODTP). A formal assessment is made through the OODTP program at least every 3 years.
  • Pre-requisites: None
