Italian Surveyors Benefit from Pro-active Eiva Training Opportunity

RMS Submarine, a resource solutions company, have recently supported and sponsored 2 weeks of back to back Eiva Navisuite training in Naples, Italy.

The two 6 day courses were run during February 2014 for the benefit of 20 experienced Italian freelance surveyors (10 per course) who until now, had not had the opportunity to be exposed to the software suite. A mix of survey party chiefs, senior and junior surveyors, data processors, as well as GIS & CAD operatives attended the courses.

Through RMS’s training expertise, we were approached to support the event and provide a competent lecturer, software support, training materials and course attendance certification. Computers and topside surface navigation equipment with full interfacing were provided by Intec Srl to provide additional hands on and real time data I/O for the attendee’s interaction with the online navigation/ acquisition software.

As is so often the case, freelance personnel are not afforded the same ease of access to focused personal development and training as their staff counterparts that therefore a more pro-active approach has to be taken as either individuals or by companies like RMS and Intec Srl.

An RMS approved lecturer was supplied for the instruction & training – Alexander Platov, an experienced Survey Party Chief and Hydrographic Surveyor and in particular with the Eiva Navisuite, commented “The courses went really well and with all participants very satisfied with the knowledge they had gained over the 6 days. Both courses ran smoothly and I look forward to similar instructor opportunities in the near future via RMS”.
