Aquatic Shares Its Know-How with Graduate Trainees

Industry experts from Aquatic Engineering & Construction Ltd, an Acteon company, have presented the company’s work and subsea operations to support DeepOcean UK’s graduate training programme and new conversion engineering programme.

Martyn Conroy, Aquatic EMEA and Americas business development manager, and Sandy Roberts, Aquatic training supervisor, were invited to speak about Aquatic’s work as part of the industry induction for the seven new graduates joining DeepOcean’s graduate training programme and new engineers joining the conversion engineering programme. The Aquatic pair joined other valued service providers of DeepOcean to provide material and education for those embarking on a career with a leading provider of subsea technologies.

Commenting on the programme, Conroy said, “It is always exciting sharing the different aspects of the work we do with new entrants to the industry. DeepOcean is a valued customer for Aquatic, so we were privileged to be among a select group of industry experts invited to deliver an introduction and overview to our area of operations, the technological innovations we provide for our customers and the principles involved. The industry needs to recruit well-qualified engineers and to provide a high level of training and experience for them in order to secure the future of the industry. DeepOcean’s graduate training programme and conversion engineering programme for those joining the industry are market-leading interventions that will be instrumental in supporting the growth of talented young engineers and helping them to flourish across the offshore subsea industry for many years to come.“

It is essential that we are able to give new entrants a good grounding in the industry, and there is no better way to learn than to hear directly. We appreciate Aquatic’s contribution and look forward to inviting them to participate again in the future.”
