MTCS have delivered their first ROV Induction Course in Lagos, Nigeria. Eight candidates successfully passed the final exam, their first step towards progressing through the MTCS Competence Management Scheme progressing to Pilot Technician I.

The MTCS Induction Course follows IMCA Guidelines and has been successfully run in the UK for eleven years and Singapore for three years.

Richard Warburton, Managing Director at MTCS said ‘we have detected a requirement for this course to be delivered in West Africa and therefore looked for a local partner. Vision Subsea Nigeria Ltd is an indigenous ROV service company with a wealth of local expertise in assisting in the setting up of the Induction Courses’

The Course included operational training with a seaeye falcon with extensive technical training including fault finding and maintenance training.

MTCS already have an established client base in the region and this is seen as a positive step towards offering quality subsea training solutions in Nigeria, put together in a cost effective package without the need for visa’s and expensive travelling costs, it means the Course can now be accessed by even more people who would not have the opportunity had the course been run in the UK.
