IMCA to Run Competence and Training Seminar

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) will hold a Competence and Training Seminar in Aberdeen on Wednesday September 2, 2015.

It is aimed at competence and training (C&T) representatives and their offshore personnel as well as oil company representatives and providers of C&T solutions.

Members and other interested parties can attend the full day event free-of-charge, but need to register at IMCA’s website.

“Competence & Training is an IMCA core activity, and the our competence assurance and assessment guidance provides members with a framework for creating their own in-house schemes for assessing and recording the competence of people working in safety-critical and other roles,” explains Jane Bugler, the association’s Technical Director and Acting Chief Executive.
