ROVOP Academy

Grow your career through the ROVOP Academy's Continual Professional Development Programme.


Our Academy is cornerstone to ROVOP’s commitment to personnel and clients to ensure our people are the most skilled in the ROV industry.

The ROVOP Academy provides our ROV personnel with a clear and structured program to develop their career. In line with personal aspirations, our teams work towards achieving clearly set out competencies. We log progress electronically as members complete training modules and gain experience.

The Academy caters for all levels. The most experienced ROV professionals can refine their skills and achieve full recognition and reward. For those less experienced, the Academy helps build new skills. Or for personnel on their very first role piloting, the Academy offers all the skills to kick start ROV careers.

Our structured development programme includes over 30 modules in areas including:

  • ROV piloting
  • Manipulators and other peripheral tooling and sensors
  • Scenario training on our simulator
  • Technical – ROV and associated systems
  • Health and Safety
  • Environment
  • Coaching and mentoring

The ROVOP Academy programme meets the IMCA training and competency guidelines. We ensure independent verification of our personnel competency through MTCS.


ROVOP has invested $400,000 in a full ROV simulator which includes 30 realistic subsea training exercises, superb 3D visuals, onboard sensors and virtual environmental conditions. The simulator is a key enabler of our ROVOP Academy.
