Since 2019, ResQ has been a subcontractor of Maersk Training delivering services to support the Maersk Training’s global training management contracts.Norway is a key hub for training services due to exposure to oil and gas and maritime segments in the North Sea and consequently Norway is a core market for many of Maersk Training´s global customers.
