Knowledge and Skill Guidelines for ROV Technicians
The Marine Advanced Technology Education Center (MATE) has provided this overview of the tasks of remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) technicians to serve as guidelines to current and future ROV technicians. This document covers all aspects of a successful ROV technician including common personality traits, a list of courses/subjects in which an ROV technician should have experience, as well as tools and equipment that an ROV technician uses. In addition to these basic generalities, the document breaks down ROV technician responsibilities into “six general job functions.” Within these categories “Technical Knowledge and Skill” and “Performance Indicators” are identified. Having these identified help technicians gage what knowledge they will need prior to beginning a task and when a task has been successfully completed. This document is a great resource for current or future ROV technicians in order to understand what is expected of them on the job.
