The Client Representative Course, run by Offshore Marine Academy, received the ‘RTN Recommended’ status earlier this month, highlighting the academy’s goals to meet training demand as well as to close the skills gap within the industry.
Running throughout the year at OMA’s training facility in Teesside, the course is available to offshore professionals seeking client representative training and certification to assist them in advancing their career.
Antony Lewis, Business Manager at OMA, explained how the RTN had recommended the course within the industry and highlighted the benefits to those who attend.
He said: “At Offshore Marine Academy, we strive to deliver the highest quality bespoke training that addresses the niche requirements of the offshore energy industries. No other training academy in this market place offers such a course; when there are so many client reps in the industry it is imperative that a standard is being set and certified, which is exactly what we endeavour to achieve.
“This recognition for our client representative training programme is a significant step in demonstrating the quality of our branded courses and is a key aspect of establishing standards within training.”
All courses at OMA are carried out by professionals with first-hand offshore energy experience.
Antony added: “With the renewable energy sector experiencing rapid growth, a shortage of skilled workers and a lack of training opportunities could put the sector at risk, which is why we have recruited leading experts who are able to offer their experiences and insights.”
Patricia Knightly, Head of Renewables Training Network, said: “The RTN has recognized that the Client Representative training program, developed by Offshore Marine Academy, is now RTN industry recommended. This has been achieved after the programme has successfully completed the assessment process and satisfied the required quality criteria.”
