Welcome to Bluewater Rigging Ltd.
Since 1999 Bluewater has been an industry leader in the development and implementation of structured training in the marine industry. As our early roots in rigging and sailing started to give way to more focus on marine electrical and electronic systems, we identified a very clear gap in regulations and requirements on the more technical systems found onboard todays pleasure and commercial yachts.
It was this area we chose to focus our attention toward and become the first Marine Designated Electrical contractor to enter into agreement with the Industry Training Authority. We are now the only Marine Designated Electrical Contractor in British Columbia with Interprovincial Red Seal Endorsed Electricians on staff. This commitment, through the ITA has allowed us to achieve a level of service based on fundamental understanding otherwise largely absent in the industry.
Our designation as an approved sponsor for multiple ITA apprenticeship programs, Construction Electrician , and Marine Service Technician, allows us to ensure you have the most highly trained, skilled technicians onboard your project.
In addition to the more broad technical apprenticeship programs we participate in, ALL of our staff are certified with the more specific marine designations as well . NMEA and ABYC are two of the standards providers we have chosen to represent.
Our Mantra here at Bluewater is very simple, to provide the most highly skilled, trained and certified technicians available in the industry, with representation of the most technically advanced products lines on the market. The pairing of these two ideologies, allows for a real synergy in the experience for our clients. We take great pride in providing something unavailable anywhere else.
