Submersible Pilot Training Courses Great Success

09/09/2015

After having completed two fully booked open submarine pilot training courses we look back upon an exciting and busy summer. Marine professionals and adventurous individuals signed up and were trained to pilot our C-Explorer 3 submersible. To learn more about their experience, read the reviews below:

“I found the pilot training course challenging yet demanding. After being a diver for almost 21 years, academically trained as a marine zoologist and qualified as an ROV Pilot Technician – this seemed `just the right submersible to initially train` for my career progression towards Submersible Biologist.

Luckily, the practical side was both exciting and thrilling and was everything I ever imagined! Practical and methodology took time to assimilate. It’s not easy listening to information given from topside in one ear and training under instruction given in another ear. Juxtaposing between `learning and piloting` and assimilating the two whilst being quizzed was quite demanding at times… The best thing I found was `how incredibly calm and relaxed` the instructor was! The sincerity of the team and their understanding of my needs as the client was a bonus – along with the fluidity of the operation. Racking up sub dives, seemed so easy, they all rolled into one!”
– Nick Coburn Phillips (Marine Scientist)

”Working in the offshore and maritime industry for 20+ years has given me some great insights into multiple and diverse subsea applications and products and I can honestly say : seldom have I came across a more professional product with such a thoughtful and proven process behind it.

Training program was both encompassing, supportive in all aspects and delivered in a format giving us the participants the correct knowledge not only to pilot/maintain the submarines but also a thorough understanding of all systems and their functions within the frame of submarine operations.

It is a great testament for U-Boat Worx and their products being certified by DNV-GL which in itself is the highest accolade achievable in the field we operate within.
Of course the fact that I as a private citizen actually have the possibility of experiencing and piloting a professional submarine like the versions offered by U-Boat Worx is beyond imagination given the fact that I am not a world-renowned scientist like Dr. Sylvia Earle or James Bond for that matter…!”
– Peppe
