Hi, I'm new to the forum and I am trying to make some inroads to the industry as a trainee ROV pilot / technician.
I have been told by a family member who works in oil and gas that I have a good technical background but may struggle due to the fact that I have no formal qualifications. Has anyone out there been in a similar situation? Any advice would be great, also has anyone got any links to downloadable info on the techie side of ROV i.e. training info for electronics, mechanics and hydraulics? Any help much appreciated Cam2380. Question

ROV related books are available through Amazon.com or Ron's Book Store.

Hydraulics online: Fluid power basics

Electronics online: Lessons In Electric Circuits

Which country are you in?

They are right in the main for companies here in the UK, formal qualifications and experience is wanted. You do not need to buy extortionately priced books about ROVs.

ROvs are electrical/mechanical/hydraulic pieces of equipment just like any other machinery.

What would be best for you is along the lines of an HNC or NVQ/SVQs in electrics, electronics or hydraulics. Once you have the formal background, you then have enough of a base to learn how these things operate on ROVs. The Companys supply training for that.

Please dont spend £150 on "The Compenent ROV Pilot book" or any such thing, it really is a waste of time (and money).

The book 'Handbook for ROV Pilot-Technicians' is a waste of money indeed. I bought it appr. 10 years ago and can say: it looks really interesting on the bookshelf.

Two ROV manufacturers have some manuals online:

Seabotix:
» Operators manual
» Service manuals

Schilling:
» Conan Slave Arms & Manipulator Systems
» Orion Slave Arms & Manipulator Systems
» RigMaster Slave Arm
» Titan Manipulator Systems
» Spares Kits, Slave Arms & Manipulator Systems
» Accessories, Slave Arms & Manipulator Systems
» System Components
» Quest 1-5
