Underwater training facility adds new course

Paul Boughton

Leading subsea training and trials facility, The Underwater Centre, has added a new course to its commercial air diving (CAD) offering, in response to the needs identified by industry. 

The Introduction to Bolt Tensioning course will make an important and strong addition to the students’ CVs, furthering the range of tools and skills training they experience while on courses. 

The course, which will be included in all the diving packages – Premium, Construction and Standard – has been made possible by the donation of equipment by The Mechanical Services Department of Stork, highlighting that the subsea industry recognises the importance of giving students the right training for the job.

Introduction to Bolt Tensioning provides students with the knowledge and understanding of working with and using bolt tensioning equipment, which they can then use in their job – whether on the surface or underwater.

Diving contractors and subsea operators need well trained and competent subsea personnel; the courses at the Centre are designed to ensure that when students qualify as commercial divers they are effective in their role and able to gain competency on the job as quickly as possible.
