RMT Diploma in Maritime Occupational Health and Safety - Level 3 Course.
I am pleased to inform you that the Union is to run a Diploma in Maritime Occupational H&S for a number of our Maritime H&S Reps already qualified to Stage 1 and Stage 2 level. This latest course is set at Level 3 (diploma) and has been developed specifically for the Maritime industry.
The course has been developed in conjunction with the TUC Dept. of Manchester South College to whom we are most grateful for their assistance. Through this work we have been able to deliver the course free to our members attending, and the Union. Safety of our maritime members is of paramount importance to the RMT so I know the wider membership will welcome this positive initiative.
