    IMCA developing high voltage training for offshore industry

    News // July 9, 2004
    IMCA - The International Marine Contractors Association - says it is currently developing a syllabus covering high voltage training for the offshore industry.

    "Proposals were recently put before our Training, Certification & Personnel Competence (TCPC) core committee and it was agreed that a format would be developed comprising a high-level basic course structure from which one could drill down by use of drop-down menus relating to specific areas of training," explained Jane Bugler, IMCA's Technical Director.

    "A basic level of training would be identified for all appropriate personnel on a vessel. Then, depending on the requirements of their day to day work, there would be further elements developed to cover specific requirements. It will be a little like peeling an onion with more and more knowledge available to those who need it because of the nature of their job. IMCA has assembled data from members, existing training programmes and training establishments. The TCPC core committee is requesting further input from members in developing this approach."
