About This Course

Historically diving system audits have been carried out as part of a semi routine or sporadic 'as required' process. Today's industry there is an increasing requirement to manage high risk work activities and where the aim is for Health and Safety excellence by both contractors and clients - a stricter regime for compliance and verification of diving equipment, diving systems and their components are being implemented. The competence of the personnel who are involved in the assurance process has been identified by IMCA as a requirement for formal auditing training needed as a means to demonstrate a level of competence suited to the field of auditing. This demonstration is more than the technical knowledge which is a pre-requisite, it includes understanding the assurance criteria along with the supporting documentation, interpretation and evaluation, communication and report writing skills.

This intensive four day course will introduce industry personnel to the principles of the Diving System, ROV System and equipment assurance requirements and processes. This will include a comprehensive review of IMCA diving assurance requirements and guidelines. The course has been designed to provide potential diving system assurance personnel with the academic competence required to understand and interpret the diving equipment requirements, along with a detailed understanding of the assurance structure and the methodology of conducting the assurance process.


KBA are a leading diving system auditing service provider having audited more than 1500 systems since 2002. The course will ‘pull on’ the experience gained. While being classroom based, there will be real life experience ‘Case Studies’ with regards to surface air diving, saturation diving and mobile portable diving system assurance audits. The course is interactive and will involve group discussions and break-out work groups. Where possible there will also be a practical element consisting of a ‘sample audit’ of a diving system component, section or subsection.

Delegates will gain a clear understanding of how to implement the diving system and ROV system assurance process, complete the report and deliver report findings.


To enable delegates to understand the methodology, assurance protocols, processes and expectations required in the diving system and associated equipment assurance process. This will necessitate a review of a suite of IMCA documents created for this process.
