Hi everyone, just joined up to the forum.

I have an interview for a Pilot Trainee position.

Has anyone been through their training progran before? I take it all companies conform to an industry standard training program so at the end you get a qualification recognised by all companies?

Thanks!

Well done on getting a start. Cant really help you with info about Deepocean.

Regarding training, there is no such qualification as an ROV pilot, or industry accreditation. IMCA are a trade organisation, a group of companies who got together and devided some standards.

Despite this each company can still train different ways. E.g. IMCA recognises Rov pilot tech 1 an 2 levels, but many companies gave lrbels 1,2,3,4 etc.

You really do not need to worry about getting formal training. You will be taught what you need to know to operate and maintain their equipment.

You will after this have Rov experience to add to your CV which is worth a lot more than formal qualifications.

Are you starting with DeepOcean UK or Norway? If its with the UK side you will go through their standard training programme. All Trainees are sent to MCTS. You will do the HV and fibre course and their rov training course. You will be enrolled in the MCTS competency scheme which is based on IMCA guidelines. You will then have to complete the various comps along with gaining operational experience to get to pilot tech 2 level. Then more comps plus experience to pilot tech 1, and so on. The company is decent to work for. Good points and bad as most other companies. One thing i would say is that we are a trenching company so be prepared to get your hands dirty. We have just taken on 2 new supporter ROVs and two Schilling UHDs so you will probably get a chance to go roving but its normally just survey and trenching support, Not the most glamourous but for starting out it gets you time on the sticks without the pressure of do construction. If you want any specifics PM me or stick it on the general forum and ill try to reply. Good look for the interview.
Very Happy

It may not be so much about what you can do, if Bev Parry does not like the look of you forget getting a job end off.

Hi everyone, i've been reading the FAQ's for a few hours.

I have sent my cv to fugro and deepocean for a trainee rov position.

My question is, is there anyone i can send it to rather than the general careers inbox?

I currently work offshore in inspection and have worked along some deepocean rov pilots this is where i got interested.

thanks..
