  • 02/02/14--02:38: IMCA Competence
  • You can 'collect' it by completing IMCA guideline competencies or company competency requirements for that level.
    Didn't they explain the progression where you obtained your PT2 competency?

    Ok so here's the 1st batch of questions , just jump in rookies if you can think of anything .
    What does the training week entail
    What happens next
    Many thanks

    I guess it depends which company you are working for and what they interpret as 'training'. You should get direct hands on experience on the systems they expect you to work on. Read up on the manuals, preventative maintenance, deck checks, fault finding etc. Flying will not happen in any real form until you get offshore.

  • 02/03/14--02:58: Asking for some advice
  • Cheers Des_b,

    It's not 100% guaranteed yet but should still happen.

    That's what I was thinking as well, with smaller companies. I do plan to gain as much experience as I can with through their ROV pilots. It's one thing I've always managed to do, to gain as much knowledge as possible from others. I'm just hope it doesn't affect me in the long run, as I would like to experience different ROV's and conditions.

    But hey first thing first,
    I have to get the job, and then work on gaining experience.

  • 02/04/14--03:00: Oceaneering online tests
  • Yes the email was from preeti, I emailed directly with my cv through a LinkedIn contact and very surprised they looked at me. Just retired from the royal navy as a mine warfare specialist. Piloted modified observation class military rov's for the last 15 years maybe that helped.

    Fingers crossed for your test

    Ad was posted quickly - hey, maybe he was in a rush, and explained website was new...

    I think you're being a little harsh chaps... seems a lot of effort to be fake? Worth a punt IMO!

    So the ad was posted quickly. Just about as quickly full contact information could have been added as required in our guidelines.

    I am now in receipt of an email from the OP advising that he is annoyed with my response. In addition he suggests that I jump towards negative conclusions and have a lot of time on my hands. If he only knew Wink

    I'm standing by my original post.. at the outset it looked like CV trawling to me. We've seen the same thing many times on this site over the years. That's why, based on previous experience, I responded the way I did.

    It's all very well suggesting afterwards that the post was made in haste. Hindsight is a wonderful thing eh?

    Note to self: Be more positive Wink

  • Excellent, good to hear you've done the test recently. Ive done something similar before so nothing massively new which is good. I think the best think to do is answer how you feel not what you think they want to hear. Unless ive got hat completely the wrong way round haha.

  • 02/05/14--03:20: GoM Operators?
  • Try Chouest Innvoations (C.I.)

    Delta Marine

    Canyon Helix

    Subsea Seven I-Tech

    and of course Oceaneering

    I started out in the G.O.M. 16 years ago and then progressed to working all over the world. It shouldn't matter if your in the GOM or overseas.....except the pay of course. Also something to think about. A lot of the guys that are foreigners working in the G.O.M. are contract hands or their companies are a foreign company working in the GOM. The contractors don't work for any one company. They contract out to the ROV companies for a certain job and/or a certain amount of time and then the next job they sign up for they might find themselves working for a different company on the other side of the globe. Most of the guys and gals working in the GOM are U.S. citizens for the most part and they are permanently employed with a company located in the U.S. The U.S. companies will mainly work in the U.S., or at least their U.S. division will. But even some of the U.S. hands will be contract hands. Better money but most of the time they don't get the benefits that go along with being a perm. employee for the company. If the U.S. companies have work overseas they will send you there if you are qualified for the job at hand usually if they don't have a division in that area of the world to do the job. I myself requested an intra company transfer so I could work overseas and make more money. You just have to weigh the pros and cons for which ever fits your unique situation.

  • 02/06/14--03:26: Oceaneering ROV Tech Advice
  • The test was pretty straight forward. Some Electrical, Some Mechanical, Some Hydraulic. Basics of each more than anything however for the life of me I still can't remember how I did so well. If you know ohms law, kirschoffs law, and that F=AP your good to go. IF not I recommend looking on youtube and downloading as much reading / prep material. You can use a calculator so bring one.
    BTW i'm obviously not MIZ but I was there and got the same job offer and seeing how he's not on the boards much I figured I'd answer for him.

  • Awesome, thank you. I've been pestering CI, Canyon, and SS7, but I haven't talked to Delta yet..

    I'd like to eventually move to working world wide, that's part of the draw of this field. But do you think I'm too far off base thinking that (primarily) European companies might pick up a US trainee? Guys like Bibby, Hallin, etc. Does that ever happen?

    Does Fugro work in the US? It seems they are looking for mostly geophysical and survey people..

  • Fugro in the GOM already have agreements with other ROV companies so generally do not do ROV work in GOM.

    I know this is a global industry but with so many people trying to get into the industry why would companies take on people who live so far from their place of work.

    If you moved to europe then you may have a better chance with them. But of course you would also require a work via.

  • 02/10/14--06:15: Resale Value of ROV
  • The resale value will depend on a lot of things.

    A few are condition, operating hours, spares included, rov type, and demand.

    If you had a popular system that has low hours, been maintained well, and has a comprehensive spares package, and you were trying to sell mid summer then you would probably get a very good price for it.

    On the other hand if the ROV had been through the ship's prop then you would probably have to pay some one to take it away.

    I'm not sure if it is still available. He had it up on Ebay and I don't see it up there anymore. For what it's worth, when he had it up on Ebay, it was for parts. I know the whip, manipulator and rear camera did not work. He also mentioned the sonar was not working...
