Job Title: Subsea Technician
Engineering, Technical, Oil and Gas, Energy
The Subsea Technician is a ‘fast track’ trainee of the Subsea Department. He or she is responsible for learning as much as possible about the subsea equipment to gain deep insight as to the various tasks and methods of the drilling vessel subsea environment. The technician will also be responsible for interacting with as many Subsea Supervisors as possible in the first year of the program.
The Subsea Technician program is intended to produce competent Subsea Supervisors from technically trained personnel in one year and on to Senior Subsea Supervisors in two years. The first year of the program is effectively full time while the second year will be equal time on and off and assigned to a drill-ship.
The first year will be broken into four stages, the first of which will have the Technicians assigned to the Subsea Superintendents, the second stage will have the Technician assigned to one of our drill-ships.
The third stage will be assigned to a different drill-ship, probably in a different country and the fourth stage will have the Technician assigned to shadow the Subsea Superintendents again.
During this first year there will be many training courses to attend and during both years there will be many assignments to complete and reports to write.
The technicians will be evaluated and tested after each stage. A failure of any evaluation, an assignment or of the written test will prevent graduation. We will, however allow one opportunity only to correct such a failure.
