Capstan Winch Training

The RTITB Capstan Winch training course will give you the skills required to be a safe and efficient operator. This course has been designed to aid with mooring, towing, aquaculture and fishing and dredging operations. This is a specialist course and therefore not all RTITB centres deliver this training. However, those who do may offer nationwide coverage.

Completion of this course will ensure that employers of vessel crews meet legal training requirements under the Work Equipment (PUWER) Regulations.

This course covers, but is not limited to, the following areas;

  • Completion of pre-use inspection
  • Primary winching components
  • Rope types, selection and handling
  • Correct signals during winching operation
  • Load and pull assessment
  • Operation of capstan
  • Safe and secure storage of equipment
