PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

With the Surface Officer Course (SOC) you will be able to work as a qualified Surface Officer after successful completion. During this program you will learn some of the aspects of a submersible operation such as communication, safety and all top-side related control tasks.

The Surface Officer is probably the most important role during the submersible operation. The Surface Officer is responsible for maintaining not only the communication with the submersible but also in charge of the safety of the entire operation.

This involves aspects such as the submersible, the communication between top-side and the submersible, and the vessel on which it operates. The training also covers topics such as regulations, permits & vessel operations.

From the Surface Officer Course (SOC) you can enroll in the Chief Pilot Course (CPC). The SOC is the basic training for the CPC.
