Aquatique Training in Marseille: COMEX’s Commitment to Safety.

Equipped with technical facilities and sea access, it includes three testing pools, with a main pool featuring a 10-meter deep pit extending over 1800 m². This center provides an ideal setting for a wide range of training programs. These facilities enable COMEX to offer training programs tailored to the specific needs of industries, businesses, institutions, and local authorities. These trainings are essential for work environments exposed to aquatic risks, in accordance with the requirements of the labor code (article R4534-136) and (article R4323-106).

The focus is on training all personnel working in environments where water is a key factor. This training enables the identification and prevention of risks such as falls into water, drowning, and the efficient use of personal flotation protection equipment. This training action also includes mastering first aid techniques.

Our educational teams are composed of specialists in aquatic rescue intervention, state-certified professional diving, and specialized doctors and nurses, ensuring tailored and high-quality training.

Prevention of falls into water and wearing a life jacket. This training will enable you to analyze risks, assess dangers, and check the presence and condition of safety equipment. Through practical scenarios, you will develop your skills to be able to analyze a situation, alert emergency services, and implement the techniques and actions required.

Maritime Safety Training. This training enables trainees to understand the origin of the difficulties that can arise at sea, to know how to avoid them, and if necessary, to manage them, alone or with the help of a professional rescuer.

Sea Survival and First Aid. This training comprises two one-day modules. The first module enables identification of the origins of difficulties that can arise at sea, knowing how to avoid them, and if necessary, how to manage them, alone or with the help of a professional rescuer. The teaching of the second module (second day), after recovering a man overboard, you will be able to analyze and assess the situation, conduct an assessment of vital signs, take care of an unconscious person, handle trauma, etc. You will learn to communicate with maritime and medical assistance services.

HUET Training: Comprehensive Preparation for Air Emergency Situations.

The HUET (Helicopter Underwater Escape Training)is for anyone who needs to travel by helicopter to and from a body of water. This intensive and comprehensive training is essential for those who regularly travel by helicopter over bodies of water, whether for offshore oil operations, search and rescue missions, or other professional activities. The training covers in detail the implementation of individual and collective rescue procedures and means, which are essential in the event of a helicopter falling into the sea.

Participants will learn to adopt optimal survival postures, to extricate themselves from submerged cabins, and to deal with critical situations such as onboard fires. In addition to these technical skills, special attention is given to first aid techniques, a crucial know-how for ensuring not only one’s own safety but also that of other passengers in case of an accident. Through realistic simulations and the expertise of our trainers, participants acquire reflexes and skills that can make a difference.
