Combined dive / ROV system auditing & assurance

JFD had been running separate Dive and ROV system courses successfully around the world for over three years and following feedback from delegates, combined them into one five day course.

JFD receives a high percentage of candidates who, having done one of the courses, return to complete the other. By combining the synergies, JFD has been able to condense the course into five days allowing delegates to save time and money.

The course offers delegates the opportunity to become conversant with IMCA guidelines and industry requirements surrounding auditing techniques, procedures and reporting of equipment.
