ASK Safety Norway
ASK Safety Norway was established in 1995 and is located in Aalesund, a city on the West Coast of Norway. The company has two training facilities in Norway; in Aalesund and on Froya. In addition, we currently provide STCW maritime training in Fosnavaag due to high demands in the market.
The first training services the company offered was safety training for fishermen on Norwegian fishing vessels. After some time, ASK Safety started to offer courses for the oil and gas industry, and the first course we had in the course portfolio was basic safety and emergency preparedness. The next step was to build a portfolio of maritime courses. The STCW convention was vital in this process and ASK Safety became one of the largest course providers of maritime courses in Norway. The last contribution to the market is courses for the fish farming industry. This industry is rapidly growing and will be one of our focus areas for the time coming.
