Get a proper introduction to subsea technology through our three-day subsea course that takes place at Equinor, OneSubsea and TechnipFMC sites in the Bergen area.

We will bring you to world leading companies, where you will receive an introduction to their products and technologies from the subsea industry in the Bergen region of Norway.

The unique mix of visiting Equinor, one of the world’s leading operators of subsea development, in combination with the leading subsea system developers OneSubsea and TechnipFMC, will give you the latest insight within subsea technologies and a good understanding of subsea production systems.

Target group

This three-day course is aimed at engineers who are:

  • new to the offshore industry
  • transferring to the subsea industry from other disciplines
  • refresher for experienced engineers to update their subsea knowledge

Most of the course will be presented in a classroom, but will also be combined with tours of the factories, giving you hands-on experience of the subsea building blocks.

The course will also be interactive and there will be opportunities to ask questions and discuss with the expert presenters about what has been learnt.

In particular, visual components have been included wherever possible to enable delegates to view products, both hardware and software, destined for subsea service.
