JFD has signed a new agreement with Fugro to provide training courses delivered by the National Hyperbaric Centre (NHC), part of JFD, at the Fugro Academy Training Centre in Abu Dhabi.

The agreement with Fugro will see JFD approved local and UK trainers delivering courses including: Client Representative, Dive System Auditing & Assurance, Dive Technician and Kirby Morgan Helmet Technician courses. The first scheduled course is the ROV Auditing & Assurance course which will take place on September 13-15.

Laura Stewart, head of sales, Commercial Services, said: “We are delighted to partner with Fugro in Abu Dhabi with this venture. It supports our strategy to increase our visibility and footprint across the globe and to ultimately promote subsea and diver safety within the industry. We have reviewed a number of our courses in terms of the material and content and I am confident that we have industry authorities delivering the training in top class facilities regardless of the courses being run in the UK or abroad. Travelling to the UK to receive training can be very costly to individuals, operators and companies so it makes sense for us to take our products abroad.”

Delegates will have access to Fugro’s two 15-20 capacity training rooms, a computer training room and on site ROV and dive systems in order to carry the practical modules of courses.

Andrew McNeill, global talent development manager at Fugro, commented: “We are pleased to be supporting the NHC with this venture into the Middle East region. Our knowledge of the region, combined with expertise in ROV and diving operations, will play a significant role in improving the training and competence of personnel here.”

JFD, part of the James Fisher & Sons, was created in 2014 through the merger of James Fisher Defence and Divex. In 2015 JFD acquired the National Hyperbaric Centre.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
