Introduction to Subsea Operations
3 day or 5 day Introduction to Subsea Operations: £750 + VAT (3 day) or £1,800 + VAT (5 day)
This course gives candidates the knowledge and understanding required to meet the Government’s regulations on subsea operations, and allows companies to have on record that they have taken reasonable steps to meet those regulations. Our course will give candidates a greater awareness and understanding of how dive and ROV teams work, and of the problems they may face. This course is for all personnel who are involved in planning, management and delivery of projects where a commercial diving and/or ROV component is required.
Candidates will gain first-hand experience on course, due to the extensive diving and ROV operations we have in place on site. Completing the course will help to ensure that candidates meet their responsibilities to the dive and ROV teams with competency and in safety, and contribute to the smooth operation of the project as a whole.
Typically a 5 day course, this can also be reduced down to 2 or 3 days depending on your specific requirements.
DONG Energy E&P spent two weeks at the Centre attending a tailored version of our Introduction to Subsea Operations Course, following the announcement that they were to perform significant repair works to the Siri Platform in the Danish North Sea.
Jake Law, Subsea Engineer at DONG said: “We have started work on a project that has a lot of diving days, approx. 80 in 2011 and around 200 in 2012. The Siri Repair Project and DONG’s continued company growth means that we need to improve on the base competency levels of our Company reps on diving vessels, which is where our need for training stemmed from.
“We were very specific in what we wanted to get out of the course. We provided some of the high-level documents from our current projects and then spent time with key people at The Underwater Centre going through the details of what we wanted to achieve from the course. The Centre could then tailor the course programme to fit our needs.
“Our Company reps already have a base knowledge and many years experience as Company reps in diving operations, but this course further expands on that, giving them greater understanding of diving methods, legislation and physiology. It’s been a great learning tool for our people.
Steve Ham, General Manager at The Underwater Centre said: “Many non-diving companies are recognising the importance of their own teams having a good understanding of the diving and ROV disciplines. They find that gaining this understanding is hugely beneficial to them in terms of productivity, cost effectiveness and of course, employee safety.
“At The Underwater Centre we have the facilities, trainer expertise and experience to put together a bespoke training package for what the client requires and will deliver results for their business.”
Non-diving personnel from other companies who have also utilised the training at The Underwater Centre include Scottish and Southern Energy, Subsea 7 and Rumic.
The key objectives of the course are:
- To give candidates an insight into the specific challenges faced in subsea operations.
- To give candidates an understanding of the legal requirements for working in subsea operations.
