The Key Objectives & Learning Outcomes from attending this course.

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

Gain a better understanding and appreciation of the various International Asset Regulatory Guidelines, manage variances in environmental conditions, codes and standards.

Interpret meaningfully and critically, project and asset information to assist you in each of the key stages.

Use a practical approach to understanding the requirements to obtain a DNV and or other Independent 3rd Party design verification certificate such as those issued by ABS and or Bureau Veritas or Lloyds Register Integrity Management.

The course also covers the regulatory requirements and integrated competence matrices as stipulated by SIGTTO for LNG-LPG assets and risk management.

  • Plan, act and do things in a timely manner to maintain your asset’s integrity in a fit for purpose, operating condition.
  • Increasing ones understanding of Asset Integrity life cycle, risk based inspection regimes through the use and application of a “Digital Twin” Asset Model.
  • Develop risk and asset management practices based upon “case studies” from different regions.
  • Those who seek to derive greater understanding of design and through Life Cycle Asset Management of Offshore Marine Terminals.


Note: * 10% Special Discounts on the Training Services will be available to members of the Society for Underwater Technology SUT and/or the Global Underwater Hub or the IMarEST for bookings received and registered in 2024. 

Still available is our Group Booking Discount which offers 25% off for bookings made by the end of June 2024. Applicable across Modules 1 thru 4 and a new Module 2 syllabus for Marine Robotics Vehicle Training AUV and Subsea Robotics specialists will be released in June 24 which will include Aquaculture assets. 

All group bookings must include a minimum of 12 candidates per course module.  Plus there will be an emphasis to help training personnel to work alongside an Operational Digital Twin of your Assets using Virtual Reality (VR) via Headsets to Augmented Reality (AR) modes as part of our SeaFlo iTwin Digitalisation Energy Transition.   With an amended Module 4 syllabus taking into account the subsea and marine equipment for Floating Offshore Wind Assets across the Energy Transition Zone we are amidst.

Course Overview

Module 4 CPD Training Course Primary Objectives

  • Discussion & instruction on DNVGL managed Ref- OREDA-SINTEF Offshore Subsea Equipment Reliability Data Base.
  • Joint-Operator Collaboration Agreement, updates on equipment reliability data and the asset integrity challenges. Forward planning and determining what the realistic reliability/availability uptime performance factors are in some ageing assets.
  • Maintenance Free Operating Periods (MFOP) targets are aligned with the particular assets actual condition and impact on life cycle OPEX Budgets, management of change considerations.
  • Examples of FMECA & RAM analysis applications as per ISO 20815 and API-RP-17N on DNVGL Maros and Taro software analysis reports and client reporting from subsea applications of asset integrity management, inspection, maintenance and campaign repair records.
  • Insight to Digital Twin subsea and Asset Integrity Management Models and the wider technology learning requirements for subsea and marine engineers, technologists to marine asset managers.

Asset Life Cycle Regulatory Reporting Guidelines

  • Table Example of Safety Case updates.
  • Discuss tracked data in your companies AIM database.
  • Asset Criticality Levels.
  • Planned Subsea IMR strategy frequencies various examples will be discussed from five to three yearly, with annual safety critical element campaigns dependent upon the age of the asset.
  • Introduction and Awareness of ISO 55000 for Asset Management and ISO 20815 covering Production Assurance and Reliability Management of Offshore Assets e.g. This includes from the subsea wells, subsea pipelines, subsea structures to the Topside Host facility, Risers and Controls System Interfaces and the key aspects of Life Cycle Asset Integrity Management.

Extract Examples: From Asset Integrity Trend Monitoring taken from CPM tools resulting in Reduced down time and operational cost.  Reduce imbalance to improved maintenance plans via more predictive frequency planning.  Condition Performance Monitoring analysis, resulting in more predictive maintenance and mitigating the operational risks on equipment failures.  Day-to-Day Safety Improvements in Operation and Maintenance responsibility will improve the more real-time data reporting and onshore to offshore access to information updates when incorporated globally, to your marine assets.

• Understanding of the periodic Marine Warranty Surveillance and Owner-Operator Asset Insurance Requirements

• Summary of key learning and how these fit into your continuous professional development training and competence measurement profile, leadership and management skills set, retention processes.

This particular Module is very comprehensive and can easily lead to between 40 to 60 hrs of continuous professional development (CPD) logged training. It really depends upon the candidates or individual levels of experience, expertise, skill sets and desire to understand an maintain full awareness of regulatory and or statutory guidelines and life cycle integrity of assets in more detail. Together with a company or organisational understanding and having a clear appreciation that asset management personnel need to keep pace with different regulations and technologies as regulations get updated.


Each course module has its own competence assurance measures that feed into an examination on the final day of the course.

If your company operates offshore assets and in particular Offshore Marine Terminals, Floating Platform infrastructures including subsea pipelines, Floating Production Storage & Offloading (FPSO’s) and/or is entering into LNG FSRU/FLNG, FSU assets with LNG Gas carriers and/or Oil tankers berthing at single buoy mooring terminals then this course/ module will be beneficial.

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day training course is focused on the key design, operability and life cycle asset integrity management considerations.

This covers all Life Cycle phases from front end (FEED) design, construction, to operating and de-commissioning offshore assets such as a Marine Oil or Gas Terminal.

The course additionally addresses ageing asset infrastructure, life extension modelling with safety and regulatory guidance and the regional variances on International Marine Regulations being put into practice.

Module 4 will provide course participants/ delegate’s an overview of the IMarEST Ocean Aware Programme:
