Since 2014 Bibby Offshore has invested heavily on its commitment to the workforce of tomorrow by their ongoing support and training of six young ROV apprentices. The apprentices have experienced a variance of training, internally at Bibby Offshore`s workshop facility and externally through the vast network of suppliers and customers. This has allowed the apprentices to gain a great overall insight into the range of offshore services that Bibby Offshore provide. Aleron Subsea has recognised these efforts and is now engaged in supporting Bibby Offshore with their ongoing training.

Managing Director Mike Bisset said: “We understand the need for high quality training of younger staff members and wanted to assist Bibby offshore where we could. We take the apprentices on a rotation in pairs where they spend time working on our ROV’s and ROV Tooling under the direction of our senior technician’s. We have also set up hour long structured lunch and learn sessions each day with Dan Fjellroth who was the senior ROV trainer at Technip Offshore, previously involved in setting up Technip’s ROV technicians competence scheme and source in conjunction with the ROV Resource manager complementary courses suitable for ROV Personnel’s professional development.

The training partnership has been ongoing successfully since Q4 2015 as is due to continue throughout 2016.
