Enroll Now in Subnet Services' ROV04E Course!

Just a week ago, Subnet Services shared with you everything you need to know about Commercial Oilfield ROV Pilot Technician Premium-S (ROV04S) training course. It is the entry-level ROV program designed for new entrants to the industry and is strictly conducted at our ROV training premises for seven (7) weeks.

This week, we will be discussing about the Commercial Oilfield ROV Pilot Technician Premium-E (ROV04E) training. It is basically the same as ROV04S; the only difference is that you can take this course online before spending six (6) weeks onsite.

ROV04E Course Additional Certification

Since the CFOT course is included in the ROV04E training program, you will be given a Fiber Optic Association (FOA) certification once you successfully passed the FOA exam. In other words, you will be a Certified Fiber Optic Technician aside from being a ROV Pilot Technician.

Another good news is, starting January 1, 2019, all FOA certifications issued or renewed will be for a period of three years, not the previous one-year period that it used to implement.
