IMCA launched a pilot Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme for Diving Supervisors in September 2019. This followed initial announcements in November 2018 regarding the introduction of the programme. These announcements outlined the development of an App based scheme incorporating the very latest in training techniques to support Diving Supervisors in keeping up to date with the latest information and guidelines from IMCA.
Trials of the App were completed by a representative cross-section of Diving Supervisors from leading contractors in the industry who were invited to participate in the consultation and testing process to ensure the system is user-friendly, appropriate, and effective.
The feedback received from the trials and assessment processes was very positive and we are preparing to launch the scheme at the end of March 2020.
