The Oban Times - - News -

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.’
