Hull inspection training

EM&I are investing in an intensive worldwide training programme for their onshore and offshore personnel.

CEO Danny Constantinis said: "We recognised that our rapid growth, fuelled by our new cost-saving technologies meant that we had to invest in providing additional specialist skills for our people. This further differentiates EM&I from other service providers and delivers enhanced safety and cost benefits to our clients."

Last week saw EM&I team leaders gathered in Cumbria from around the world to take part in a high-intensity training event.

The programme included the launch of hull inspectors competency training, an initiative arising from EM&I’s leadership of the HITS JIP (Hull Inspection Techniques and Strategy, Joint Industry Forum).

The hull inspectors competency syllabus has been developed by EM&I on behalf of the industry and includes theory and practical assessments before certificates of competency are issued.

COO Pat Lawless said: "We are working through the HITS JIP to create the new hull inspectors competency standard and expect that this will evolve into an industry-wide requirement in the same way that we led the IRATA rope access international standard."
