Fort centre works with university
THE UNDERWATER CENTRE in Fort William has teamed up with Robert Gordon University to run a commercial diving course.
As part of the university’s MSc Subsea Engineering and MSc Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering courses, The Underwater Centre is delivering theory sessions including diving physics, diving physiology, gases and diving systems and diving regulations.
Two students visited the centre last month to complete the week-long course.
Student Felix Daboner commented: ‘ The facilities and equipment they have at the centre are all exactly like you would find offshore so it was great to be able to get hands- on experience.’
Steve Ham, commercial director at The Underwater Centre, added: ‘ We’re delighted to provide handson, realistic exposure to the subsea industry. By partnering with universities, like Robert Gordon, we can provide important experience that helps further the students’ training.’
