IMCA does not state any expiry as far as I aware.
As with everything else IMCA, it is up to employers/companies as to what they are willing to accept. IMCA is not law, it it s a trade organisation that has set up a defined set of standards. Companies can choose to follow them, or ignore them, it is completely up to them.
Training schools may decide to issue a certificate which runs out after 1 year, 5 years or never. The certificate is as "valid" now as it will be in 100 years time.
It is up to the companies what they wish to accept.
e.g. they will expire if the company decides they wont accept them after a certain time.
The Moby Dick - 300 ROV has recently been added to the ROV category on Geo-matching. Feel free to share your user experiences with your peer professionals on Geo-matching.

I got hit last month with a request for a Norwegian specific medical for passage on a nowegian oscv into uk waters ! It's not the 120 pounds extra when I've already got bosiet and OGUK medical but more the fact that I've had to find one of these doctors - they have to be approved by the Norwegian government.
It turns out it is a genuine requirement though, apparently the OGUK is only suitable for use on the rigs ?

The Deep Trekker is the best reviewed ROV Geo-matching. Read some of the reviews here:
"Overall, the Deep Trekker DTG2 is a well thought out and executed micro ROV based on a very clever design. Construction is top notch and rugged. Although it includes a one year warranty, I see no reason why, if properly operated and maintained, you wouldn't get many years of service for your investment. Operating the DTG2 initially can be challenging, but eventually will become second nature. A few minor improvements would make this transition even faster and easier. For the price, you'd be hard pressed to find a better value hide"
For those of you in the know. How much roughly in in the current climate would a client pay to charter a sub-atlantic Super-Mohawk ROV with cage TMS or similair spec in the north sea for instance? And how much are clients paying for Pilot Techs and Supervisors? Any response is much welcomed and appreciated. Cheers
I have been asked for a STCW95 cert working on ROVs offshore.
I have a STCW95 Personal Survival Techniques course cert and that has always satisfied the client.
PST is one module of the STCW95 basic course. It costs about £140 to do.
I would check to see if you only need the PST ticket before you spend £1100 on all the modules.
The PST cert I have does not have an expiry date on it.
I also have an ENG1 medical and the maximum fee for a ENG1 is £80.
From Jan 2017 those 2 units need to be updated with in a 5 year period.
Even if your cert has no expiry on it so it will no longer be valid.

|This year i have to renew
UK and Norway offshore medicals UKCOA ,OLF
Norweigan seamans medical for vessels
HV certificate renew
Total cost over £1750 when VAT , travel and accomodation and other expenses added ,
that does not include possible STCW or ENG1 or other medicals required for asia ???
its a lot of time and money and its a slow year
Bad luck if they all happen to be due the same year
I haven't done a "high voltage course" in over 15 years.
My understanding is you now no longer require a separate UK and Norwegian medical - Norway will now accept your UK one. Many agents and companies dont seem to know this and continue to ask for it (rather like STCW!)
RAY a lot of clients jobs seem to require a HV cert if you are a supervisor , or the designated ET and for vessels in Norway you also need a separate noggy seamans medical , its a little bit more thorough than UKCOA one and the OLF .
its all getting a bit complex and very silly ....
I'll give them a ring see what they can do
Thanks for your reply and compliment. And yes, I'm a brazilian citizen.
My only concern about SS7 is that currently I'm working with a very old technology, the vessel and ROV I am attached to was launched decades ago.
As I'm very young at the moment I feel that this is the time for investing in my future and I'm not seeing this as a perfect place for getting experience as much of the technology I'm dealing with is outdated.
Maybe my thinking is wrong, I don't know really if people that have only worked with old systems are viewed as something bad or not in the ROV industry.
