Our history

ASK Safety AS was established in 1995.  The location was in the town of Ålesund at the west coast of Norway.  The first training services the company offered was safety training for fishermen on Norwegian fishing vessels.

After some time the decision was made to start develop training courses for the oil and gas industry.  The first course was basic safety training for personnel on oil rigs.  ASK worked continuous with widening the course portfolio for this industry.

The next step was to build a portfolio of Maritime courses.  The STCW convention was vital in this process and ASK became one of the largest course providers in Norway for maritime courses.

The last contribution to our marked will be sea-farming.  This industry is rapidly grooving and will be one of our focus area for the time coming.

Our locations

ASK has our main office in Norway.  Located at Trippeveien 1, Larsgarden, 6009 Alesund, Norway.  From this office we control activities at our other locations as well as the on-board training.  At this location all the development planning is carried out.
