Founded in early 1994, Samson Tiara commenced the construction of the Helicopter Ditching training facility at Santa Fe Base, Merak, Banten. The facility was completed in June and commissioned during July 1994. Training of local staff began during this period and the first classes were held in August 1994.
In April 2004, Samson Tiara received official OPITO Accreditation for a variety of courses. OPITO training is internationally accepted and is competence based (competent / not yet competent), with plenty of hands on practical exercises.
In July 2006 Samson Tiara began construction of an all-new facility on a one-hectare block at the Krakatau Industrial Estate Cilegon. The new site opened for training in November of 2006.

- Three TEMPSC lifeboats

In 2011 Samson Tiara expanded operations to the Kalimantan region, opening the first internationally approved training center in Senipah, 45 minutes from Balikpapan. This centre was fully equiped and approved to deliver a variety of OPITO courses. Unfortunately due to market conditions in the area, the centre was forced to cease operations in early 2017.
An experienced medic is always present at all training sessions and facilities to ensure the safety of participants. Full medical services are available at the Krakatau Medika Hospital for Cilegon and Anyer.
Accommodation for Cilegon training participants can be provided by the Royale Krakatau Hotel overlooking the Cilegon Golf Course or at the Amaris Hotel, both about 5 minutes drive from the center.
