Dynamic Positioning Induction
The training course is intended for marine deck officers and marine engineers who are interested in becoming operators of dynamic-positioned vessels. The trainees should be duly certified under the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) regulation as deck and engine officers.
The course provides the aspiring DP operators the basic principles and elements of a dynamic positioning system. These are the control systems, position reference systems, environment and ancillary sensors, power generation, and supply and propulsion. It outlines and explains the different operations and applications of the DP system.
Training delivery uses theoretical discussion and practical operation of the DP system. Practical exercises are performed using the desktop DP simulator. The trainee needs to pass the online examination and get a score of 70% or higher. A Certificate of Completion (COC) and a Nautical Institute (NI) DP logbook are issued to the trainee after completing the course.
