Good Morning

I'm Rov P/T Grade II and I would like to collect the upgrade for the Grade I. How I can do?
I have to do an exam? Or before I need to collect the Competences on my Log Book?
Thank you in advance!

You can 'collect' it by completing IMCA guideline competencies or company competency requirements for that level.
Didn't they explain the progression where you obtained your PT2 competency?

Candidates must submit the following:

Submit a witness statement for the grade at which they want to re-certify. The witness statement must be completed by a line manager or equivalent.
Submit valid survival and medical certificates for the region of the world in which they wo

IMCA cert renewal

How does MTCS verify the 'witness statement' ? Confused

What is to stop your friend/father/dog just writing a 'witness statement' ? Shocked

There is no regulatory body for ROV operations so the system is not administered or monitored by anyone in particular. Therefore, it is open to the types of abuse you suggest by way of your questions above.

As it currently stands, pretty much anyone could set up an ROV company and, as a manager, sign people off as competent. Whether they were competent or not would only come up when the job is under way!!

If they do change they will only change to better suit the needs of IMCA members.

IMCA issues guidelines that petroleum clients use.

If an ROV operator pays their dues to IMCA, they can issue certificates.

Its up to the operator to ensure these guidelines are met. But don't confuse guidelines with requirements... Every company has their own view on what makes a person competent or not. This is why not one in house IMCA portfolio is identical to the next.

Their is also nothing stopping a company from not recognizing the competency scheme from another.

In that respect MTCS is a good alternative. Canyon uses them for instance. They still grandfather people in because of stubborn idiots like me who always snobed it because its a load of BS.

Unfortunately petroleum clients rely heavily on IMCA to a point where they wont accept an HV cert if the IMCA logo is not on them. (true story) Or turn around competent personnel if they don't have it. (also personal true story).

When it starts to affect my income, its time I fall in line. But who will sign my competences if I am at the top of the ladder? Do I have to ask the trainee if I did a reterm correctly after I showed it to him? lollllll

I guess I will ask my dog to print his paw.

Moral of the story is, just do it now and I suggest you use MTCS.
