Offshore and Maritime History

IFAP’s North Fremantle training facility was opened in November 1994 by the then Premier of Western Australia, Richard Court.

The facility came into being as a result of IFAP successfully competing against international training providers for the Woodside Offshore Petroleum contract to build a centre which provided the world’s best practice survival training for the offshore industry.

The facility was closed in October 2020
