One of our operational offshore energy courses, which provides training in the efficient running and successful delivery of offshore renewables projects, has received industry recognition from the Renewables Training Network (RTN).
The Client Representative Course, which is taught at our Teesside-based training facility, received the ‘RTN Recommended’ status earlier this month highlighting our ambitions to meet training demand as well as to close the skills gap within the industry.
Running throughout the year, the course is available to offshore professionals seeking expert client representative training and certification to assist them in taking the next step in their career.
It has also been undertaken by onshore personnel working within the industry who require an in-depth understanding of the role of the offshore client representative.
Business Manager at OMA, Antony Lewis, explained how the RTN had recommended the value of the course within the industry and highlighted the benefits to those who attend.
“At Offshore Marine Academy, we strive to deliver the highest quality bespoke training that addresses the niche requirements of the offshore energy industries. No other training academy in this market place offers such a course; when there are so many client reps in the industry it is imperative that a standard is being set and certified, which is exactly what we endeavour to achieve.
“This recognition for our client representative training programme is a significant step in demonstrating the quality of our branded courses and is a key aspect of establishing standards within training.
All courses here at OMA, which range from introductory courses to operational and technical courses, including cable engine driving and procurement and construction are carried out by professionals with first-hand experience of working within the offshore energy industry.
Antony added: “With the renewable energy sector experiencing rapid growth, a shortage of skilled workers and a lack of training opportunities could put the sector at risk, which is why we have recruited leading experts who are able to offer their experiences and insights.”
Patricia Knightly, Head of Renewables Training Network (RTN), said: “The RTN has recognised that the Client Representative training programme, developed by Offshore Marine Academy, is now RTN industry recommended. This has been achieved after the programme has successfully completed the assessment process and satisfied the required quality criteria.”
