DOB-Academy

Offshore energy education for professionals

Empowering Engineering Excellence

DOB-Academy offers offshore energy education for professionals. Our main focus lies in courses, ranging from entry to advanced level. Next to the curriculum, we also provide tailor-made courses. Furthermore, to enhance knowledge-sharing, we organise seminars and offer the possibility to host and cater offshore events in our conference rooms. Our historic building also includes an in-house studio where high-quality videos are designed and produced for educational and promotional purposes in the offshore industry.

COVID-19 update

In order to continue providing our training courses in times of the COVID-19 pandemic, all our training courses will be given in either hybrid or online format until further notice. Luckily, with the current developments we can slowly opeup DOB-Academy  to allow more guests in our building during events. For these days, we will have an entrance protocol in place, please scroll down for more information.

Both hybrid and online training courses consist of live-streaming sessions with continuous interaction between the teachers and all participants. The difference between these formats is that during hybrid sessions a small number of participants can attend physically in our building in Delft, while others attend simultaneously via live-streaming. The content of the lectures and cases during a hybrid session is equal for both physical and online participants. 

Please visit the page of your training course to consult the available dates and formats (hybrid or online). 

The maximum number of participants allowed at our training courses will depend on the Dutch COVID-19 regulations and may vary over time. If necessary, or if we deem fit, we can and will switch from hybrid to online format to safeguard the health of our clients and colleagues. 

We have strict COVID-19 protocols in place when visiting our building in Delft that allow us to safely teach our offshore energy training courses. Visitors are given the protocols beforehand and are expected to follow these protocols during their visit. 

During events (such as training courses) we use the official Dutch CoronaCheck app to allow access to our building. Our entrance protocol is in line with the recommendations  of the Dutch Government regarding events. Only people with a valid Coronavirus pass are allowed access, this includes our own staff as well. Besides the CoronaCheck app, official vaccination or test documents are also accepted. These papers should contain an official QR code that can be scanned upon entry in the building. If guests (or staff) cannot provide a valid Coronavirus pass, we will facilitate self-tests that can be taken at our back entrance.

Next to our entrance protocol, we still uphold our current COVID-19 protocols which are in line with the basic guidelines of the Dutch Government; remain at 1.5 m distance, do not give handshakes, wash our hands regularly, etc. Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 is asked to stay at home, even when they are fully vaccinated.
