Have you trained as an ROV pilot? Did you get some experience offshore and then never get the opportunity to pursue this career? Do you want to get back into ROV work?

The ROV world is booming at the moment and we have exciting opportunities for ROV pilots.

1 years ROV experience in a technical capacity.
Cable experience

3. The contract will be geared to guarantee you work and will be based on 180 days.
4. Working worldwide on O&G contracts, e.g West Africa, Brazil, Gulf of Mexico, Australia and probably some North Sea. The trips will be typically 3, 4 or 6 week trips depending on where they work.

Who grades the candidate at Sub Eng level with almost zero experience? Cumbria sounds like MTCS and if this is the case then they must have either changed their IMCA competency scheme or be breaking the rules unless they mean they'll grade you Acting Sub Eng? Confused

When I did this scheme I had to accrue 100 days offshore as a pilot tech II plus one year in the industry and 200 days offshore as a pilot tech I plus 30 months in the industry before being eligible for Sub Eng grade, not to mention all those competencies that had to be fulfilled too. How can a cable ROV pilot be awarded such status by attending a three day course and having a few hours piloting in his back pocket?

Out of interest what does this company pay IMCA certified supervisors?

Finally, what copmpany is it so I know who to avoid, sounds like they're really asking for trouble. Laughing

Adios Wink
Thanks for saying it, K2. Finally, we can use our IMCA cert's for what they were always destined to be.........BOG ROLL!!!!!

Naaa, just fancied a change! I figure the Yoda may have portrayed me as being old and wise and I don't want to disappoint anyone!!!!

How long do you need to train to be pulled along by a ship anyway. I think this will be Global marine anyway. They call everyone above chef Sub eng I think.
Have to be good at fishing too Laughing
Are they providing PPE or is that only required when the ships bar closes?
Don't forget the uniforms ! Shocked
