Thirteenth unit launched for Diving Supervisor CPD App

Published on 15 March 2023

IMCA has launched a thirteenth unit for its well-respected Diving Supervisor CPD App.

The App, which initially launched in 2020, is aimed at facilitating Continuing Professional Development (CPD) which became mandatory for certified IMCA Diving Supervisors in January 2021.

Designed to enable supervisors to easily demonstrate that appropriate CPD has been completed, it is available on both Apple and Android phones and tablet devices. For those working at sea, or with poor data connections, the content including interactive tutorials can be downloaded to be completed offline.

Commenting on its publication, Bryan McGlinchy, Diving Manager at IMCA, said: “We’re delighted to share this latest update to our Diving Supervisor CPD App which forms a key part of IMCA’s ongoing commitment to improving safety standards in offshore diving.
