    NHC opens in Singapore - launches ROV auditing and assurance course

    Training // June 10, 2014

    UK-based National Hyperbaric Centre (NHC) is opening a new facility, NHC Singapore.

    The new centre will meet increasing demand for training and consultancy services in the area, and will offer a new ROV system auditing and assurance course.

    NHC said the course "is an industry first" and will rovide technical and operational ROV personnel with the knowledge and competence to become fully aware of auditing processes, enabling them within their role in the industry.

    "The auditing and assurance of diving systems has been integral to the offshore industry for many years, and we have driven diving system auditor competence through its specialised courses ran by industry experts.

    "Previously there have been no equivalent ROV-specific courses, but as this specialised industry is expanding rapidly, companies and offshore operators are now seeing the benefits of such audits and with this comes the requirement for trained and qualified personnel," the NHC said.

    The three-day course combines practical and theoretical elements enabling delegates to become conversant with IMCA guidelines and industry requirements surrounding auditing techniques, procedures and technical reporting of contractor’s equipment.

    "We put this course together alongside highly knowledgeable professionals who have extensive experience of carrying out ROV assurance audits throughout the world," said the NHC.

    "Having been involved closely with the development of guidance, products and services which ensure ROV systems can be audited correctly, we are confident that this course gives candidates a thorough, detailed and accurate experience to the highest of standards."

    The ROV system auditing and assurance course was launched in Singapore but regular courses will also be scheduled in Singapore, the UAE, South Africa and Aberdeen.
