Massive interest in soldiers retrained for offshore

Even before the training programs for retraining Danish veterans for jobs in the offshore industry have begun, the people behind the program are experiencing interest in the future students from companies in Denmark and abroad.

The students from the Danish Offshore Academy are in high demand, and the program has not even started for real yet, says the creator of the coming training academy for re-schooling Danish war veterans for jobs in the offshore industry.

“There’s a huge demand from the business. They want us to train 1,000 students a year, but we can’t do that now. We can start two academic teams a year, one in February and one in September. Each team holds 30, so we can train 60 students academically, and when we get up and running we can train 300 on the short term,” says Ole Brøndum, former elite soldier and initiator of the new program.
