    JFD and Fugro to provide training courses in Abu Dhabi

    Training // September 26, 2016

    JFD has signed an agreement with Fugro to provide training courses delivered by the National Hyperbaric Centre (NHC), part of JFD Ltd, at the Fugro Academy Training Centre in Abu Dhabi.
    The agreement with Fugro will see JFD approved local and UK trainers delivering the full range of courses that are currently offered by the NHC including: client representative, dive system auditing and assurance, dive technician and Kirby Morgan helmet technician courses. The first scheduled course was the ROV auditing ana assurance course which was due to take place 13-15 September.

    Laura Stewart, Head of Sales – Commercial Services at JFD, said: "We are delighted to partner with Fugro in Abu Dhabi with this venture. It supports our strategy to increase our visibility and footprint across the globe and to ultimately promote subsea and diver safety within the industry.

    "We have reviewed a number of our courses in terms of the material and content and I am confident that we have industry authorities delivering the training in top class facilities regardless of the courses being run in the UK or abroad. Travelling to the UK to receive training can be very costly to individuals, operators and companies so it makes sense for us to take our products abroad.”

    Delegates will have access to Fugro’s two 15-20 capacity training rooms, a computer training room and on site ROV and Dive systems in order to carry the practical modules of courses."
