About the course

This two day course provides an awareness of the main aspects of subsea intervention and will help learners address typical subsea issues, such as choke failures, dropped objects, pod failure, valve failure, flying lead or jumper failures.

Focusing on the different types of intervention and the typical methods for inspection, repair and maintenance, learners will gain an understanding of how to assess unique subsea emergency problems and identify solutions. Moving on from identification through to logistics and testing, this course will teach how to develop risk based remedial and contingency plans. The tutors will also share their experience of subsea component failures and interventions during the course.

This course is ideal for engineers, technical team leaders and managers looking for a grounding in the tools and methods available for subsea intervention.
