The LAPA Training site is located at the beautiful riverside of the largest river in Latvia – the Daugava had play host to fun and educational sessions for kids and adults.
The activities have been run by the LAPA Team and included getting up close with the family members, attending safety and survival sessions and lots of kids attractions.
All the guests were able to walk around the training site, review safety tools, ask questions and try various FiFi and survival equipment including fire extinguishers, life boats,  immersion suits, rescue boat, life rafts, signal  rockets and flares.
Alongside the activities, all the kids had a fun and learned how to use fire hoses, lifejackets, enjoy drawing, football and participate in the darts tournament and wore firemen outfit.
The Day of Sea at the LAPA Training Site is a fantastic day out at any time of the year with something outstanding for everyone. The site has become an adventure playground where guests have tried to wear a seaman hat. We are excited to bring a range of new activities to the LAPA and are looking forward to welcoming guests many of whom will be enjoying driving a rescue boat, fighting a fire and enjoying a smoke and darkness rescue exercise wearing breathing apparatus for the first time in their lives.
There is really something for everyone across the day, from kids drawing, to specialist emergency services teams.
Please follow us on the FB and LinkedIn for not to miss the invitation to the next adventure.

Odessa - Exhibition 2019

The LAPA has been invited to attend the Crewing and Training exhibition took place at Odessa, Ukraine last week. When you first walked into the exhibit you are greeted by a huge sign of the LAPA and it gave a nice background on the activities.

The LAPA has been represented with the large stand and we had most visitors interested in our crewing and training services and we had very good opportunity to advertise our Customers fleets on the Ukrainian market.

Along the largest Shipmanagers we had a chance to discuss on the future of the crewing in the region and the simulator’s training with the industry experts such as the Kongsberg and Wärtsilä. It is something we pursue now and want to pursue in the future and it was cool to see how the shipping industry develop in this digital era.
