With increased confidence and activity returning to the subsea sector, and greater demand for ROV services globally, it’s vitally important that personnel are trained to the highest levels of competency and safety. The momentum of maintaining a highly skilled workforce is key to supporting the growth of the sector and as the requirement for additional recruitment grows, being able to demonstrate a commitment to career development and safety through dedicated training is essential for success.
At ROVOP, we have established the ROVOP Academy as a cornerstone of our commitment to personnel and clients to ensure our people are the most skilled in the subsea robotics industry.
The academy caters for all levels of expertise. The most experienced ROV professionals can refine their skills and achieve full recognition and reward. For those less experienced, the academy helps build new capabilities. Or for personnel in their very first piloting role, the academy offers all the training necessary to kick-start a career in subsea robotics.
Training for our staff across all disciplines is key for us, which is why we have invested over £1million in training facilities and personnel development, benefitting our people wherever they are. The various training plans available for all levels within the company, ranging from health and safety, technical, developmental and competence assessment and leadership training, mean the ROVOP Academy has a tailored training plan ready for all.
On-the-job training, such as the competence assessment offered by the academy, is typically undertaken offshore and a significant portion of the financial investment has been devoted to work-class ROV simulators (WROVs). We operate three WROV simulators- one based in Aberdeen, one in Houston and one that is mobile.
At ROVOP, we aim to attract, shape and develop young talent, making sure all new employees complete our robust recruitment and training programme.
An example of the success of our academy has been its first ever modern apprentice based in Europe, Douglas Young. While undertaking his mechanical engineering studies, Douglas worked at our Aberdeen base, learning from a highly skilled team and gaining valuable knowledge and hands-on experience of our state-of-the-art ROV fleet.
Personnel development is at the heart of ROVOP’s sustainable business model. With an increased demand for our services globally, training and development programmes are certainly being prioritised as we plan for the future.
