Survival Systems Training Limited (SSTL) has provided training to the Oil & Gas, Aviation, and Marine sectors for more than 18 years. This Nova Scotia training company’s recent expansion will enhance their capabilities and bolster their current global presence, ensuring more businesses and people around the world can access life-saving safety and survival training programs. “We provide training to companies and people from all over the country and around the world.
