Skilltrade specializes in hydrographic training and courses for the hydrographic survey, dredging and offshore construction industry since 2000. Courses and training developed by people who gained their experience in the field and taught by those same individuals. The heart of the company is that the skills its people possess can be traded or exchanged with others, thus improving their hydrographic knowledge and understanding.




Skilltrade can provide courses and training in three areas by combining theoretical with field experience material:


1.  Hydrographic Survey Category B course - Full Hydrographic Survey curriculum encompassing all basic and essential competencies of the Hydrographic Surveyor as defined by the FIG/IMO/ICA International Advisory Board on Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors for a Category B Course. The course has been officially recognised as such on the 1st July 2008 and received continued recognition (in accordance with the Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors FIG/IHO/ICA S-5, Edition 11.1.0, December 2014) in 2016. We offer an intense course, a 13 week course in IJmuiden (including 1 week Safety training) preceded by a 13 weeks e-learning programme. The course is fully intertwined with visits, workshops and guest lecturers from companies that support the curriculum.


2.  Introductory and generals courses in hydrography, land survey, positioning and mathematics, depth sensors, motion sensors, survey sensors, underwater acoustics, offshore construction and earth sciences. Furthermore we offer a Client Representative training. Advanced courses in Geophysical sensors, ROV sensors or electronic trouble shooting. On request for a quotation these courses can be adjusted to specific training requirements and be given at any desired location.


3.  E-learning Modules: Mathematics, Physics, Bathymetry, Geodesy, Global Navigation Satellite Systems. Skilltrade offers guidance and assistance to the students.




Skilltrade aims to answer your training needs. The various existing modules provide a starting point for almost all company specific courses, allowing for specific requirements to be included. We evaluate participants at what level to start as a result of which we are able to tailor or combine the courses like building blocks. When people come to a stage where more management or project skills are required we are also able to provide that next level.




Furthermore Skilltrade publishes the 3 volume Handbook of Offshore Surveying and the GNSS Handbook for professional users. Please visit our bookstore at for more information.
