Subsea 7 Engineers Dive into Intensive Training at Scotland Site
Inspection engineers from a leading subsea company are taking part in a two week training program at the world’s leading commercial diving centre.
"We see this as a great opportunity to further increase the awareness, knowledge and expertise of our inspection engineers in the early stages of their careers."
For the Subsea 7 engineers, the course at The Underwater Centre is the culmination of an intense six week internal training program which is integral to the candidates' induction process.
Duncan continued, "Inspection engineers are required to work closely with divers, subsea engineers and ROV pilots, so it is vital that they understand the particulars of these disciplines. This enhanced understanding will enable Subsea 7 to achieve its goal of developing the largest pool of trained and certified inspection engineers in the industry."
The original site at Fort William was chosen by Royal Naval divers due to its suitability for professional diver training with multi-depth levels from 6 meters to 150 meters in a sheltered location, allowing for training in almost all weathers.
The Underwater Centre is the only training center in the world that offers the full range of health, safety and environment (HSE) commercial diving qualifications in air and mixed gas diver training, from HSE scuba to HSE approved closed bell diving. As well as the seawater dive site with a large range of underwater structures, facilities include an enclosed dive training pool, purpose built welding bays, private pier, three barges with wet bell and closed bell training facilities, fully equipped lecture rooms and accommodation for up to 49 students.
