Unique Group’s Training Centre Gets Nautical Institute Accreditation

Unique Group’s training centre for Dynamic Positioning (DP) systems has recently obtained an accreditation from Nautical Institute.

The training centre is located in Port Harcourt, Nigeria and is a joint venture between Unique Group and Nigeria based Charkin Maritime & Offshore Safety Centre.

The training centre will offer the DP basic Operator and DP Simulator Courses which are now certified by the Nautical Institute. The DP Basic Operator course will mainly focus on defining the principles of DP and the components of a DP system.

The DP Simulator course will help trainees to further enhance their DP knowledge and skills through hands on experience of simulation tasks.

Sharad Kumar, group BDM at Unique Group said, “We’re delighted to obtain an accreditation from the Nautical Institute and the accreditation comes at a time when Unique Group is significantly investing in its training division to impart world-class training standards by providing industry-specific individuals with top-class facilities and experienced trainers. The location of Port Harcourt is also of strategic importance to the group and this is in line with empowering the local youth to enhance their maritime skills, thereby opening the path to improved maritime job prospects in Africa.”

Sir Charles K. Wami, CEO/MD at Charkin Group added, “We’re happy to be partnering with Unique Group to offer trainings related to dynamic positioning. The initiative has been introduced due to the demand from the growing Sub-Saharan Africa maritime and offshore industry and will include a string of DP trainings so as to diversify our own portfolio of safety and maritime courses, all accredited to the best of quality and safety standards.”

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.
