CPD for IMCA Diving Certification Schemes

IMCA has introduced a continuing professional development (CPD) scheme for diving supervisors, following a successful pilot which commenced in September 2019.  The CPD scheme incorporates the latest in training techniques to support diving supervisors in keeping up to date with the latest information and guidelines from IMCA.

The CPD system went live in early April and 4 units will be issued during this year.  From Q1 2021, this will become a mandatory requirement in order to maintain your IMCA supervisor qualification in ‘current status’.

Unit 2 went live on 1 June – please read the press release for more details.

Unit 3 will be launched on 1 September and Unit 4 in December.

Privacy notice

Data collection and processing is undertaken in accordance with the IMCA privacy policy, which sets out your rights and our responsibilities, available at www.imca-int.com/privacy-policy.

Data provided here is used for the following purpose(s):

Accreditation and certification – IMCA runs accreditation and certification schemes for certain positions in the offshore industry. As part of this, it collects and processes personal data relating to candidates and qualified personnel, which includes additional identity verification (such as passport or driving licence details), details of relevant certification and work history and a history of the application process, including examinations and resits. An online validation facility limits access to personal data to display of confirmatory details. An IMCA CPD app, available for certain positions, uses only that data necessary to enable login and tracking of user progress. Such data is generally retained permanently. This is required to ensure a robust system that ensures the competence of those working highly safety critical positions in the offshore industry.

Specifically, this form collects data from those seeking to pre-register for the IMCA diving CPD scheme. Personal data reflects (or updates) that already held in the certification database. In addition, you may choose to provide photographic ID, such as a passport scan, to speed the verification process. The photographic ID submitted here is retained for no more than two months following successful verification. It is then deleted from our systems.

By submitting this form, you are indicating acceptance of the IMCA privacy policy and of the lawful basis for processing of your personal data.
