Competence & Training is an IMCA core activity, providing guidance on competence assurance and assessment, training, and information on recruitment and careers in offshore, marine and underwater engineering.
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. It is especially designed for members who need to demonstrate the competence of their staff to clients and regulators and to adhere to standards such as ISO 9001.
Certification by industry-recognised third parties, as well as our own initiatives in this area, gives IMCA members access to a global training and competence development framework.
We recommend ways to members to promote awareness in government, universities, colleges and schools of the employment opportunities available in the offshore industry to talented and skilled personnel.
IMCA members can view further information on the work of the Competence & Training Core Committee in the IMCA members-only area of the website.
