Working with PaleBlue who have designed the simulator and virtual reality system, KBAT is pleased to be able to bring this exciting new training and competency development tool to our clients. This simulator training for Saturation Diving Supervisors has been designed to give IMCA Trainee BELL Diving Supervisors hands-on experience of operating a realistic dive panel while conducting a real diving operation. The ‘Dive Control Simulator’ is a touchpanel-based digital simulator for training diving supervisors.
At the end of the training period on the dive control simulator, delegates will have developed the following competencies:
When a trainee bell diving supervisor completes his IMCA Trainee BELL Supervisor course, it is daunting to sit on the panel offshore for the first time and this simulator training will definitely prepare the trainee. Through the simulator training, he will be more confident and aware when starting to work as a trainee supervisor, plus it provides him with the valuable panel hours in preparation for taking IMCA exam.
Dives supervised will be logged in the trainees’ supervisor log book.
For trainee BELL diving supervisors, dives will be appropriately logged, signed and stamped, which will count as double hours towards required panel hours.
