IMCA (International Marine Contractors Association) is the international trade association representing offshore, marine and underwater engineering companies. We became a training establishment member in 2009.

OGUK (Oil & Gas UK) is an offshoot from UKOOA. We were approved and commissioned to create eLearning programmes to roll out and support their latest industry “Guidelines for the Safe Packing and Handling of Cargo to and from Offshore Locations”.

We also actively participate with industry work groups, to raise standards and provide dedicated training courses and support materials to improve the skills of the Oil and Gas Industry workforce and hence improve safety overall.
