Benefits of Simulator Training for Saturation Diving Supervisors

Struggling to get those final hours on the saturation bell diving panel or have been trying to complete your panel hours within the timeframe as per IMCA D013 (IMCA offshore diving supervisor and life support technician certification schemes) and IMCA C014 (Guidance on the Use of Simulators)? If you are having difficulty to achieve those final hours – there is a solution now!

KBA Training Centre has launched the ‘Simulator Training for Saturation Diving Supervisor’ whereby trainee bell diving supervisors can gain up to 70 panel hours and 10 bell runs through a 35 hands-on hours’ experience on a class B simulator.

Career development is more than just training and getting a certificate – it should be about personal development. Regardless which industry you’re in, continuously investing in your staff or in yourself and embracing a lifelong learning attitude is important for organisational growth and personal development. Those with the right mind-set – to be proactive, dare to take risks and undergo a journey of skills upgrading, will reap the benefits in their organisations and career’s ahead.

The hurdle of completing the panel hours is a feedback often received from many trainee diving supervisors. For those with a foresight of their personal development and planning to progress to the supervisor role; taking on the ‘Simulator training for Saturation Diving Supervisors’ is the step forward to complete the required panel hours. The training will boost your confidence, enhance your competence and experience with a range of emergency drills/scenarios to the extent that cannot be achieved on a real diving panel (unless it is a real emergency – but it might be too late for one to wonder what to do and how to react). Not only valuable to trainee diving supervisors, but it also serves as a competency development training for certified diving supervisors to refresh their skills. The simulator training will prep you for the unexpected; just like the old Boy Scout Motto – ‘Be Prepared’.

To bring this system to the industry, it has involved great commitment from the developers and those involved with the diving scenarios (both in terms of monetary and effort); who believe that such systems will enhance the safety of diving operations. There will always be ‘Nay-Sayers’ who do not understand the process to develop our industry from the ‘dinosauric’ ways of, ‘this is how we have always done training so what’s wrong!’ to more effective and interactive training that meets the industry needs and requirements of today and the future. Plus, there will also be individuals who simply look at the cost to train on the simulator without weighing the benefits of career development such as better jobs (supervisory leading to management roles), increase in remuneration and alternative career opportunities.

The opportunity cost of retraining and restarting the panel hours if one fails to complete them within 2-3 years timeframe is so much higher than to sign up for the simulator training and gain the required panel hours within the timeframe. If we equate this monetary investment in your personal development; the ROI is actually quicker than any other business ROI known, whereby you would have more than 100% return on your costs in a 3 – 4 week project.

As the industry turns the corner from the last few recent years, with more DSV’s on the market and increasing workloads; the vision of those in the position to work and develop their careers will have the similar vision of those believers of making the industry safer with enhanced training systems involving a range of technology. There will be those early adopters who see this as an opportunity vs the ‘laggards’ or ‘technophobes’ who wish they had done this earlier; so which group do you fall in?
