Providing a realistic subsea operational environment

Stretching 500m, from our onshore base of operations into our subsea site, the pier at The Underwater Centre has been developed in recent years to give students and companies a realistic subsea operational training environment.

When you step onto the pier, you are governed by the same Health & Safety Regulations as you will find offshore, so as well as training you in the key skills required in your new career, we show you how you are expected to conduct yourself in the working environment.
