Oxy‐Dive Training Center created in 2012 the ROV Training Division to train new personnel for the Oil & Gas  Industry.

The ROV Pilot/Technician Grade II courses are held at Oxy‐Dive ROV Training Division facilities in Alexandria  Egypt, following IMCA C 005 guidelines.

The acquired competences are documented and signed by Oxy‐Dive in the ROV Personnel Logbook provided at the end of the course.

All courses are designed to transmit a general and complete overview of the ROV Pilot/Technician role, ranging from technical skills for ROV operation and maintenance to the knowledge of the work environment and applicable regulations.

Oxy‐Dive ROV Training Division believes that practice is fundamental, especially for those who are new to ROVs.

It is for this reason that Oxy‐Dive guarantees at least 20 hours flying time with Simulator and real ROV.
Practical sessions are made of increasing levels of difficulty, simulating real working operations generally encountered offshore.
