Fugro has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Commercial Dive Academy (CDA) and AMC Search (AMCS), to collaborate on bringing Fugro’s highly acclaimed Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) Induction Course to Australia. This four-week ROV Induction course is an ideal entry point into the ROV industry and will be presented by CDA at their facility in Beauty Point, Tasmania.

This ROV course will be suitable for people who have the relevant IMCA pre-requisites and are looking to enter the industry, expand their opportunities or change their career path into the complex and challenging world of piloting an ROV to support offshore renewable energy projects, offshore scientific or environmental work, offshore energy inspection, repair, maintenance or construction work, underwater search and recovery work or even wreck investigation.

Nic Bender, Acting CEO of AMC Search commented: “AMC Search is thrilled to partner with Fugro and the Commercial Dive Academy (CDA) to offer this comprehensive ROV training program.

"With Australia's exclusive economic zone brimming with activity, the demand for skilled ROV operators has never been higher and through this collaboration. We're proud to be part of a comprehensive training program that combines AMCS industry expertise with Fugro's global reach and CDA's rigorous training standards.”

Michael Strong, General Manager of Commercial Dive Academy, said: “Our school’s vision has always been to offer a long-term fulfilling and viable career pathway that extends beyond diving. The collaboration with AMC Search and Fugro will enable us to deliver a broader set of skills to a wider range of ambitious individuals and better serve the marine, offshore and oil and gas Industries.”

Wayne Reynolds, Global Technical Training Manager at Fugro, added: “The offshore industry is going through a significant period of growth. Trained staff are needed to meet the demand for personnel as the global offshore renewables and coastal zone mitigation markets expand, as more staff are needed to remotely pilot ROVs while maintaining capacity and competence in inspecting offshore infrastructure. Partnering with industry-leading organizations CDA and AMCS will allow Fugro to expand the reach of our training.”
