About this Virtual instructor Led Training (VILT)
This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course will provide detailed learning to the various aspects of the design, analysis and operation of subsea control systems for a variety of field development options to allow effective management of subsea facilities either from offshore structures or from shore bases. This will include power and telemetry focusing on electrical, hydraulic and electro-hydraulic systems, shut down systems, and application of intelligent monitoring and “smart” fields.
By attending this VILT course, participants will be able to:
- Access detailed knowledge and understanding of the requirements for, and design of, subsea electrical, electro-hydraulic, hydraulic and programmable control systems.
- Learn the components and uses of a wide variety of subsea control systems, the requirements for and design implications, of umbilicals and control lines (power and telemetry)
- Gain knowledge and ability to model, power requirements subsea and detailed understanding of the requirements and objectives of pre-commissioning, both at the factory and in situ.
- Find out the standards involved in design of equipment, control and application of manual and automatic shut-down valves, and emergency response systems
- Learn about the design of redundancy and the role of spare capacity and to be able to put this knowledge to effect to contribute to detailed field design. An understanding of obsolescence management in subsea control systems
This VILT course is intended for offshore and onshore subsea production control systems, engineers, technicians, supervisors, operators and existing staff with a limited exposure to production control and a need to understand the technical aspects of the system.
Companies which are not directly involved in the day-to-day support of the industry, but are occasionally involved in supplying and supporting operators as well as manufacturers and suppliers of Oil & Gas equipment and services may also find this a useful course to understand how their equipment and technical expertise is integrated into the Offshore system.
- Basic or Foundation
The VILT course will be delivered online in 5 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, with 2 breaks of 10 minutes per day.
Course Duration: 5 half-day sessions, 4 hours per session (20 hours in total).
For most of his working life, your expert course leader has been in a role that has enabled him to pass on skills and knowledge to others. A full-time role in Training and Development came about in 1996 with the offer to take up a full-time teaching post at Aberdeen College. In 1998, he was recruited by Kvaerner Oilfield Products, an Oil & Gas industry company, specialising in Subsea Control Systems, to develop and implement a Training & Competence program acceptable for its staff of over 600 and their client companies – a challenge he could not resist. In 2003, he broadened his horizons and became an independent Training & Development consultant. Building a reputation for delivering training and development to the Oil & Gas industry to the highest standards, he later joined Jee Ltd, a leading subsea engineering and training company based in Aberdeen. He was tasked with a wide portfolio of training, coaching & mentoring to achieve high levels of competence for the client’s staff and customers. He is also a Science and Engineering Ambassador (Scotland), promoting the need for engineers and technicians for Scotland’s industries, a frequent consultant to the European Economic & Social Committee for standardising Vocational Skills training and competence throughout the EU. He holds memberships in the Society of Operations Engineers, Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development and Society of Underwater Technologies.
To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.

The training course is very beginner friendly. Every detail was explained clearly, using effective materials and effective communication by the trainer! He keeps encouraging us to ask and if we ask, he definitely answers us and explains further. Overall, the course is excellent! Can't wait for my next course here with PetroEdge!
Subsea Engineer, Shell Philippines Exploration B.V.
Drilling Engineer, ADNOC
The Subsea Control Systems & Umbilicals course was a very detailed course which gave me a better understanding of the system. As a Control Room Operator operating Subsea Facilities, I can now apply improvements to work matters.
Operations Engineer, Shell Philippines Exploration B.V.
The trainer was very knowledgeable. He emphasizes on parameters/aspects that we should take into account in our design, during implementation and during operation. This is a very informative session indeed
