Are you sure there's not an '0' missing off the rate?

Either way, the sad thing is that someone will take the work.......

Stay Safe

Not sure on how much a rov training course is maybe someone will bring us up to date but if your only earning up to 120 USD per day last I heard it was a few thousand at subnet in the Philippines so its going to take you some time to pay it back . People better start thinking is rov work worth it ?

Well look on the bright side they pay for your survival course .

Cheers

On the diving front the ME was always the badly paid starting ground... I can't see why ROV would be any different and as long as they can get people at those rubbish (if you live in the western world that is) rates, they'll keep sucking them in. Whether they make it into the wider world or not is another matter entirely.

There is also a down side that many are aware of...
You can't simply flood ROV systems (from supervisor downwards) with under trained low paid labour and hope to get away with it. It'll cost the ROV system owners far more than they think they'll save in low day rates, along with them being run off by the client a few times.

Nothing to get too excited about me thinks.

However as James the Boss says they negative costs of using cheap labour usually come back to haunt the ROV operating companies in ,lost down time , broken systems and clients running them off .

Companys dont care as long as your cheap , Contact any agency and the first thing they ask is whats your day rate ?

However if you have experience on SMD , UHD , XLX and Innovator the rate are on the up and up just look at the agency requirements on this site .

Lets hope the rates go back up to 2008 rates only time will tell .

Cheers

That's purely down to those doing the hiring and not the people that can't do the job. The problem lies at the top.

Its been the case that ROV crews have been getting more diluted every year. The general quality of personel is on the slide and has been for years. Its almost certain 50% of the ROV crew will be duffers these days. Cheap labour or not. Has this come back to haunt the ROV companies...?

Besides cheap labour isn't always bad labour. I've seen heaps of well paid supervisors who are completly useless. They seem to be everywhere


From personal experience of ROV Project Management - for 3 years contract in Asia, the people was working from Europe with the european market rates - my salry was nothing compare to their and i have all the responsability including the financial. As the result and as the PM of this project i can say that only 10% of people was doing their job close to what they suppose to do, all other was only ambitious dummy`s which can only make a good CV and charge the crazy rates. Big problems with attitude, skills, motivating of personel from Supervisors, no personal responsability and etc. It is hard to find a diamond now in a pile of s**t and the market is adopting for this Smile Currently, personaly I would not hire anyone with the rate more than 500USD day and only after i will see what he can, see his real value, i will start to talk about some higher rate to keep him in a crew and in the company. All this is IMHO. And another IMHO the rates will not go up for another year or 2.
