Field-based teams are now able to check the work status of offshore dive contractors, thanks to a new web-based certification system.

24/7 access to a contractor’s diving credentials

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has launched the new online facility as part of a digital transformation programme which will enable members to access verification services 24 hours a day.

The new service provides confirmation of all five certificate types currently issued:

  • Air Diving Supervisor
  • Bell Diving Supervisor
  • Life Support Technician
  • DP Company Authority
  • DP Trials & Assurance Practitioner

The search form is now available at for registered website users to check the status of any certificate provided to them by its holder.

The existing option of contacting the IMCA certification team will remain available during London office hours.

The online verification facility also confirms the in-date status for continuing professional development (CPD) which became mandatory for Diving Supervisors at the beginning of 2021. Users of the IMCA Diving CPD App will continue to be able to share detailed CPD progress, with the existing app function redirected to the new facility automatically.
