E-learning module is intended for theoretical training of new employees hired for job connected with ROV operation in accordance with IMCA R 002 Guidance.

At the present moment more and more extensively during underwater operations Remotely Operated  Vehicles (ROV) are used.

All personnel engaged in ROV operations should be sufficiently competent for executing the assigned tasks.

Competence must be proved by the corresponding qualification and presence of work experience but mostly a combination of both is required.

IMCA (International Marine Contractors Association) developed Guidance on Competence Assurance and Assessment to achieve the aim of safety improvement by establishing the personnel competence assessment criteria.

Guidance comprises different job functions:

  • ROV Supervisor
  • ROV Senior Pilot Technician
  • ROV Pilot Technician Grades I and II

New employees hired for job connected with ROV operation must receive training in accordance with IMCA R 002 Guidance, which sets the requirements for ROV Personnel and contains the introductory course plan.
