Bibby HydroMap’s First Apprentice Becomes Category B Certified

Posted by December 17, 2015

Twenty-year-old Emma Lamont has recently graduated top of her Hydrographic Survey Category B course with Skilltrade in the Netherlands. 
 
 
Lamont joined Bibby HydroMap in 2012 as a hydrographic surveying apprentice, and has since played an active role in both data processing and offshore site work with the company throughout the U.K. and Europe. As part of Emma’s CPD plan, the company organised for her to attend the FIG/IHO/ICA International Advisory Board recognised course, which covers all basic and essential competences of a hydrographic surveyor. 
 
Combining theoretical and field work over a duration of 12 weeks, the course was well attended by companies including Gaz de France, RWS and Van Oord.
 
 
This follows continuing investment by Bibby HydroMap in their workforce, whose training schedule currently includes courses in RYA Level 2 Powerboat, QPS Qimera, vessel dimensional control and mobilisation, LSS land survey, working at heights, basic survey engineering, driving safety, MMO (Marine Mammal Observer) certification and basic/intermediate seamanship training.
