Vantage Drilling picks ICM Group for offshore training

Consulting services firm ICM Group has been awarded a global preferred agreement for Vantage Drilling’s onboard regulatory and crane training requirements.
ICM said that this long-term agreement, effective from March 2021, covered the majority of ICM’s training programs to support Vantage Drilling’s onboard training requirements.
It will also contribute to expansion of the standardization within training delivery through its global fleet, this will ensure that all employees are trained as per industry standards and in-line with the safety procedures set by Vantage Drilling and their clients.
Niek Van Leeuwen, managing director of ICM Group, said: “We are honoured to be rewarded this agreement and value the ongoing trust of Vantage Drilling. The group is continuously developing new ways of working with clients to enhance efficiency and value creation through its various Manpower and Training & Competence services.
“Such long-term collaboration represents a concrete sign of confidence to ICM Group confirming its abilities to successfully deliver training programs tailor-made to the continuous changing needs of our clients with a core focus on added values.
“Ongoing investments, the strengthening of the management team and global workforce allow ICM Group to realize a strong safety and operational training delivery close to what we define as a perfect operational result”.
Derek Massie, vice president of human resources at Vantage Drilling, stated: “At Vantage we recognize the requirements for fully trained and competent people. It is through our people that we achieve our ‘Perfect Day Every Day’ goals.
“We are pleased to partner with ICM Group who provide us with expert onboard training to enable us to train our people to the highest standards, effectively and efficiently”.
Since the training would be delivered throughout the company’s entire global fleet, this means that it will also be applied to four Seadrill Partners’ floaters currently being managed by Vantage – the West Polaris and West Capella drillships, and the West Leo and West Sirius semi-submersibles.
