Subsea centre to deliver enhanced diver training coursesTraining // April 1, 2016
Subsea training facility The Underwater Centre is helping to increase its students’ employability in the downturn by adding new modules to its commercial air diving courses, offering an enhanced package which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
From March 2016, the ‘Premium’ and ‘Construction’ diver training packages will also include:
• Commercial Enriched Air Nitrox Course
• MJI 21 Hydraulically Tensioned Subsea Bolted Connections Course
• IMCA Diver Medic Training (DMT) or IMCA Assistant Life Support Technician (ALST) Training
The modules have been added after consultation with industry and will provide students with important additions to their CVs in the current challenging climate.
The MJI 21 Hydraulically Tensioned Subsea Bolted Connections Course provides students with the knowledge and practical experience of working with and using bolt tensioning equipment. Delivered by an expert from Stork, who also supplied the equipment, the course includes isolations, dismantling, inspection and assembly, and tightening techniques in this specialist area.
The Commercial Enriched Air Nitrox Course – the only one of its kind delivered by an independent training provider – gives a recognised industry qualification and ensures training in specific techniques around using Nitrox as a diver.
