Namaka Subsea has developed an IMCA-approved Trainee Diving System Inspector course in line with the IMCA Accredited Diving System Inspector (ADSI) Scheme. The course is designed to provide awareness of the competence requirements and process of completing an IMCA Diving Equipment System Inspection Guidance Note (DESIGN) inspection.
The course is made up of 15 modules and includes a multi-choice assessment which will be completed at the end of each module. All modules are discussed in-depth and contain essential information required not only to understand how an inspection should be carried out but also how to manage an inspection through to completion and is aimed at personnel hoping to join the ADSI scheme and become an IMCA-accredited diving system inspector.

The poor quality of DESIGN inspections throughout the world has led to IMCA implementing the ADSI scheme, and a register of IMCA accredited DESIGN inspectors. It is, therefore, necessary for the industry to identify a core group of experienced DESIGN inspection practitioners working in every IMCA region and for them to complete the DSI scheme leading to accreditation as an IMCA DSI and inclusion to the DSI register. These diving system inspectors will have followed the DSI scheme route to certification as an IMCA DSI, and it is they who will be considered by IMCA to have the competence to complete an IMCA DESIGN inspection.
In an effort to assist the industry to achieve safer working practices and operations, Namaka Subsea plays an active role, by ensuring a position within the relevant workgroups, such as the ADSI workgroup and committees such as IMCA Safety, Medical, Technical & Training (SMTT) committee, whereby involvement in these workgroups has seen the development of inspection processes on behalf of IMCA.
