Fugro Academy’s Thousandth Surveying Course - 10/08/2012


At the end of June 2012, Fugro Academy, based in Aberdeen, UK, delivered its 1,000th surveying course. Fugro Academy has been providing survey training since its creation in 2006. In that time, over 7,600 staff have been trained in their profession, which is the equivalent of around 35,000 days of training.

Survey training courses are developed to support the training and development of Fugro’s surveyors, engineers, geophysicists and data processors. Training starts with basic induction to and familiarisation with the company and offshore survey operations, leading to technical courses in systems and processes used by Fugro, through to supervisory and management training for senior staff as they take on leadership and supervisory roles in offshore operations. Almost 50 different courses are available to Fugro staff to help them develop the experience and competence required to perform their roles.

A team of experienced survey professionals (see image) design, develop and deliver these courses. As well as classroom training courses, Fugro Academy also provides a wide range of online courses to staff covering surveying, health and safety, human resource development, office software applications, leadership and management and interpersonal skills. Many of these have been developed internally to address the specific requirements of Fugro’s business.
