General: IMCA Launches New Freelance Competence Materials

Posted on 23.09.2013 - 04:15 EDT in GENERAL NEWS by jamesmc

 IMCA Launches New Freelance Competence Materials Raising the profile of the competence of offshore personnel, and the value of company competence schemes, across the marine construction industry is one of the core activities of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA)

Following the development of freelance materials for its Offshore Survey and Remote Systems & ROV divisions, and a revision of core Marine and Diving competence frameworks in 2012, IMCA has now launched freelance materials for its Marine and Diving divisions. This means that IMCA now offers a full suite of competence assurance frameworks tailored specifically for freelance workers.

 “Our message to all individual freelancers is simple,” says Jane Bugler, IMCA’s Technical Director. “Please make use of these invaluable tools to tap into the assessment and verification process already operated by companies to which you are contracted in order to track and record the completion of competences assigned to your role. We are holding an increasing number of Competence Seminars - so far this year in Aberdeen and Kuala Lumpur, with one in Houston, Texas yet to come on 19 September - these certainly increase the profile of the competence of freelance personnel within companies, personnel agencies and amongst individual freelancers.”

Based on the core IMCA frameworks, the IMCA freelance materials come complete with introductory guidance, worked examples and supplementary sections to record both assessor and verifier details and comments. The packs can be found on the IMCA website at where they can be downloaded free of charge.
