Professional Inshore USV Operator Training

Operational training for users of small Uncrewed Surface Vessels, within inland or inshore waters

Small USV.jpg

The introduction of small Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) has revolutionised the conduct of surveys within inland waters and marinas, providing greater flexibility in their completion and enhancing output.


The variety of waterspace in which USVs can be utilised is of notable benefit, however it also presents challengers to the operator; whether that is by way of other users or environmental conditions. It is therefore important that operators of these vessels, regardless of size, are appropriately trained and cognisant of the challenges they might encounter.


Successful completion of the course will equip USV operators with an appreciation of the requirements for USV operations, including the regulatory environment, control methodologies, and situational awareness challenges of working with remotely operated vessels. It will ensure the safe operation of the vehicle and provision of a safe working environment.

Additionally we will provide you with the relevant maritime qualifications, stipulated by the MCA, to operate within inshore waters and Area Category 6.


The course is delivered at our training facility in Southampton, however please contact us if you wish to conduct the course at your own location or utilising your own vessel.
