Opening Ceremony of Comercial Diver Training Centre

Tag: Announcements

KBAT saw the official opening of our commercial diver training facilities on the 6th February 2015 at the SAF Yacht Club @ Changi. We were honoured to have Guest of Honour, Mr. Wong Weng Sun, President & CEO of SembCorp Marine Ltd; and VIPs Mr. Chan Yew Kong, Director of Occupational Safety and Health Inspectorate, Ministry of Manpower (MOM); Mr. Raymond Wong- Senior Assistant Director, WSH Competency Standards & Accreditation/Manpower Capability Building; Mr. Abdul Malik - Chairman of Commercial Divers Association Singapore (CDAS) and Mr. Koh Hock Lim- General Manager of SAF Yacht Club to grace the ceremony.

We were delighted that 45 industry members and associations joined us in the celebration of the first Commercial Diver Training Centre in Singapore and the launch of the national accredited inland/inshore diving programme to help raise the safety standards for commercial diving works in Singapore. The site visit had given the guests a greater insight of the professionalism and quality training that KBAT uphold, and together we can garner more 'buy-in' from the industry, clients and individual commercial divers to follow the standards and work safely.

It was a very good couple of hours with the site tour and lunch provided and we would like to thank everyone who joined us for the special event. The first course of 12 divers on the Level 1 - Commercial Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (CSCUBA) Diver also took time out of their days diving to witness the opening before they returned to the water while guest toured the facility.
