Corporate Team Building (Practical)
Are you looking for a team building session that will really push the boundaries? Do you want team members to really gain from the experience as well as enjoy it?
If you want to develop a group of employees into a highly functioning team whilst pushing what they believe is achievable then look no further.
At The Maritime Skills Academy we use real Marine Survival Training to put groups through their paces but still maintain the core principals of any team building event. Team work takes on a whole new meaning, when NOT using it can mean the difference between life and death.
Using our state-of-the-art training facilities your team can take part in a realistic life raft launch, rescue casualties from the sea survival pool, enter a burning ship module, carry out firefighting procedures and even launch and operate a fully enclosed lifeboat in the marina.
Practical exercises provide each delegate with the opportunity to build their own confidence, increase their trust and confidence in others and find strengths they didn’t know they had. All sessions will be run by The Maritime Skills Academy trainers who have a wealth of industry knowledge and will ensure this team building session will be like no other.
Experiences can be adapted for the individual client depending on their expectations and requirements but below is an outline for a recent Team Building Day for Saga Cruises Operations Department:
- Marine Evacuation System Drill
- Life Jacket Water Entry - each delegate will don a life jacket and enter the water from the pool side and demonstrate three methods of casualty handling in the water both in pairs and as a group.
- Casualty Handling
- Life Raft Task - delegates will enter, use and leave a life raft safely and learn about maintaining survivability.
- Buoy Challenge - a “Breeches Buoy” system will be rigged for the safe transferal of all other team/crew members to the raft.
- High Level Water Entry (for those that wish to) - a confidence based exercise where delegates can enter the water from the top deck (3.4m) using the already practiced safe technique with team encouragement and celebration.
