Cable Engineering Training


Global Marine’s Training School has been delivering cable engineering courses to students from around the world for many years. Companies are able to send delegates to the outstanding facilities at Global Marine’s headquarters in Chelmsford, UK, or alternatively our trainers are able to deliver on-site training at a customer’s own premises.

It is acknowledged across the industry by cable ship operators and those with interests in maintaining submarine cables the importance of having competent staff who are well informed and trained in the latest cable engineering techniques. This is essential when operating either on board a cable ship or at any of the cable stations that may be involved during a cable repair or installation.

For cable maintenance authorities Global Marine also offers a range of courses at varying levels designed to provide awareness training, or a broader understanding of cable engineering from the cable repair process from a ship perspective. Training can be tailored to suit precise customer requirements.

  • Terminal Power Safety Officer Training and Certification
  • Terminal Station Operator Training – DC and Optical Testing
  • Testing Appreciation Course

Clients can also place delegates on Global Marine’s shipboard representatives familiarisation courses. These provide participants with the necessary resources for sailing with the cable ship as a maintenance authority’s representative during a cable repair.
