ICM continues to support Seadrill with Global Training, Recruitment and Manpower services.

Client Feedback:

The ICM instructor was dedicated to teaching the courses requested by our training matrix during this project on Seadrill’s West Tellus and West Saturn rigs. We could count on him to relieve any doubts about the Labor Safety legislation in force.

All courses received by ICM were very well commented by all collaborators and everyone felt comfortable with the information passed on by the instructor. The content of the training was informative and very well managed by Nilton.
