Hi there,

They will let you know during the interview for sure ref the salary etc, it might differ from where I will be working and don't want to give you false info.

I don't know about rotation and such like but I believe that once I return completed paperwork to OI I will get more info.

It will become much clearer during the interview. I take it that it is a telephone interview.

All the best, and good luck.

Regards

DB

Hi Slappy mate,

Can't help really I'm afraid, I had an interview via the phone from abroad.

As with all else, just be yourself I guess.

They will do the asking, just do your best and you'll surprise yourself.

Good luck

Hi Mike,

Three weeks to the day. I guess it also might be depending upon how much notice you need to give your present employer.

Hope that helps mate, good luck.

Hey there, I'm finishing off my apprenticeship as a Car mechanic and my final units of my HND electronics engineering. I already have my HNC. I'm looking to go offshore as a trainee. Any suggestions?

Have you read through the Rookies section on here, also the FAQs (link over on the left) for a start?

Also, you do not need to post the same message 3 times on the website, once is enough.

I joined Oceaneering last August and completed the Initial training course in Batam (Indonesia) its a 9 weeks course and is good fun.

while your over in indonesia as a trainee you get 18k salary plus 50 quid a day for everyday youre over there, youre also put up in a really nice hotel with all meals etc.

they teach you everything you need to know on the course however a basic understanding of hydraulics and electronics will make the content easier to ge your head around.

On completion of the course I was a bit unlucky and had 18weeks with no work, and since then have don 3 , 3 week trips in the north sea with long periods off in between ( luckily you get paid salary) however some finished indonesia and were straight on a rotation 4 days later with no time off- so it just depends what the demands are for ROV.

you get a competency book on completion of the course to be completed when out on jobs- which requires you to complete around 10 jobs on the system and also gain 100 hundred flying hrs (10 of which you acquire on the course) ……Once you commplete this book ( around a year after course) you move from junior to pilot tech lvl 3

as a junior tech if you are on rotation you make around 36k/year

as a pilot tech level 3 you make around 55k

then you can literally jump through the ranks at your own pace ……

hope this helps. feel free to ask any questions
