FRC WBV MANAGER Course HiPer Craft - Tuesday 18 June

FRC International is running WBV MANAGER at HiPer Craft 2013. The Whole Body Vibration awareness course on Tuesday 18 June is part of the professional programme organised by ASNE in Norfolk Virginia from 18th to 20th June.

WBV MANAGER is a 1 day course that runs from 0900 to 1600. The standard course fee is $400 per person. Attendees also receive FREE ADMISSION to all 3 days of HiPer Craft.

FRC International is offering reduced-rate registration at $200 for all active duty military and civilian government employees (non-contractor civilian and military) attending the WBV MANAGER course at HiPer Craft. 

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) is hosting the High Performance Craft (HiPer Craft) Forum, an impartial forum for professional interchange between operators, maintainers and industry providers in the high performance boat and combatant craft community. Attendees will have access to exhibits, in-water boat demonstrations and static displays, vendor presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities in addition to technical discussions.

WBV MANAGER is a one day workshop that covers the latest international technology and methods for improving high speed craft operations. All organisations operating RHIBs and planing craft are invited to attend.

John Haynes, Operations Director of FRC International said, "Whole Boat Vibration on RHIBs and planing craft is a global problem that affects both crews and passengers. The military, Special Forces and SAR community are already engaged. Government agencies, police, wind farm, oil & gas and all organisations operating planing craft now need to take action. FRC WBV awareness courses have been developed for all sectors affected by this major issue."

The WBV MANAGER course is also relevant to naval architects, designers, boat builders and equipment manufacturers. All the latest military and professional tender specifications for RHIBs and high speed craft reference human factors and require boat builders to reduce the effects of WBV and RS (Repetitive Shock) on occupants. Besides delivering the latest knowledge this is a great opportunity for industry professionals to get together and discuss what really works.

Launched January 2012, the course brings together international best practice and defines industry standards. Over 500 personnel from 75 organisations have already attended. WBV MANAGER is recognised for 6 PDH (Professional Development Hours) by ASNE and course attendees will receive The Nautical Institute certificate.
