Offshore hydrographic surveys require skilled personnel regularly performing safety critical, technical and operational activities, and training programs designed to serve the industry have developed to a strong level.
But are those strong training programs producing operators and other individuals who are competent immediately?
There’s definitely a case to be made that shore-based and AUV manufacturer oriented training lays the foundations competence is built on, but as it takes place in a different environmental context with less stress, does it also assure competence?
With over fifteen years’ experience working with offshore contracting companies putting robust, fully accredited programs in place to ensure those companies’ personnel are competent in safety critical activities.
Our competence programs are well established in the oil and gas industry and hinge on assessing candidates in the right context – the workplace – by trained and qualified, occupationally competent supervisors.
The oil and gas industry now requires competence certification for many safety critical activities. Through our fully accredited competence schemes, we provide an effective risk management tool and ensure employers can meet their obligations under all relevant safety legislation.
We’ve now added a range of competencies for AUV operators in line with relevant IMCA guidelines (Survey Engineers and ROV Pilot Technicians), building on our work with ROV and Survey companies in the AUV field.
