SUBC Receives Landmark Accreditation
A specialist provider of subsea blowout preventer (BOP) personnel and subsea and hydraulic courses to drilling contractors and service companies has become the only Scottish company to receive full International Association of Drilling Contractors Drilling Industry Training (IADC DIT) accreditation.
Aberdeen based SUBC Engineering Ltd becomes just the 13th organisation worldwide to receive full IADC accreditation, and only the second in the UK, and, as Managing Director Colin Burney, explains, the recognition sets SUBC apart from its competitors. “Full IADC DIT accreditation differentiates us from other training providers. It is an independent stamp of our quality of training. IADC is one of the strongest and most important organisations in our industry. It is a big achievement when another body recognises us and our quality of training. It also give us confidence to expand our training division. This allows SUBC to be recognised worldwide”.
IADC DIT accredits training providers in the delivery of custom-designed courses, with the aim to ensure similar courses meet consistent industry-defined standards for course design, delivery and quality control.
SUBC currently offers five fully accredited hydraulic and subsea courses: Basic Hydraulic, Accumulator, Introduction to Subsea Systems, Basic Subsea and Well Control Equipment for Jack-ups.
The current calendar year has seen a rise of more than 400% in the number of delegates who have undergone training within SUBC’s East Tullos base and of the courses on offer, the most popular has been the one day Accumulator course for several high profile clients including KCA Deutag and Petrofac Training.
Formed in 2009, SUBC Engineering Ltd. has operated in no fewer than 27 countries and has established operations in key energy destinations such as Brazil and Singapore, in addition to boasting a presence in Houston.
