IIMS Certifying Authority two day training event in November set to focus on workboat coding

The IIMS Certifying Authority has put together what promises to be an informative and valuable two day programme on 20/21 November 2017. The programme is relevant to coding surveyors who currently survey workboats, but is equally likely to appeal to those wanting more knowledge in this crucial and growing area. This event is a mix of hands on surveying coupled with classroom based training with informative presentations to conclude day two.

IIMS is especially grateful to Mike Proudlove MIIMS (and his colleagues), who have agreed to host this special workboat themed training event at his place of work, Offshore Turbine Services Ltd (OTS). The OTS yard is located at 3 Maypool Building, Dartside Quay, Galmpton, Nr Brixham TQ5 0GD. OTS operates a fleet of fast, versatile vessels that transport technicians, cargo and fuel to offshore work sites and installations. Their Integrated Management System ensures quality, safety and the protection of the environment in all that they do. OTS is ISO 9001 and ISM Code accredited.

Mike and his team have arranged to have one of their fast crew transfer vessels from their fleet out of water in readiness, so that delegates can undertake a mock coding survey, before completing the WB2 form required to gain MCA code compliance on day two. Mike and Fraser Noble will host and monitor the two working groups on the first day.

The agenda, which is subject to change, is as follows:

Monday 20 November
10.00 Meet up at Dartside Quay for initial briefing
10.15 Split into two groups (depending on numbers) to start the coding survey on the vessel compiling the necessary information and notes to enable a WB2 form to be completed on the second day
12.45 Lunch break
13.45 Regroup to continue coding survey – groups to switch between Mike and Fraser at an appropriate time
16.30 Close for the day
19.00 Group dinner for those who want to join at a local venue

Tuesday 21 November
Due to numbers, the classroom based training on day two will take place at the nearby Paignton Club, just a few miles away. The address is: The Esplanade, Esplanade Road, Paignton TQ4 6ED.
09.00 Work in small groups (depending on numbers) to compile the WB2 form followed by coming together as one group to go through the completed forms, highlighting areas of disagreement, followed by discussion and agreement
12.45 Lunch
13.45 Continuation of WB2 form work
15.30 Andi Lloyd will present the short seminar on the role of the MCA in inspecting Code vessels for IMDG Document of Compliance / Packaged Dangerous Goods. This is an important area for the wind farm industry and work boat sector and is often overlooked by vessel operators (and surveyors!)
16.30 Close

The cost of attendance for both days in person is £190 to include lunch on both days. Dinner and accommodation is at own cost. The second day only will be available to view online at a cost of £95 via zoom online conferencing. 5 CPD points are awarded to those who attend and 3 points for those who join online.
