Dynamic Positioning (DP) Revalidation course
From the 1st January 2015, all DP Certificates issues by The Nautical Institute must be revalidated every five years. The DP Revalidation course is designed for those who hold an NI DPO certificate, but who have failed to gain the required sea time to revalidate it.
This course involves both theory and practical training (50:50) on Modal Training's KONGSBERG K-Sim Class A DP simulator and will update candidates with the latest rules and regulations, position references and sensors, known DP incidents and lessons learned.
This course is delivered in English and requires candidates to have a good standard of verbal and written English, including industry relevant terminology.
This course allows certified DPO's who have not gained sufficient sea time over the proceeding 5 years to revalidate their certificate. The course may be completed up to 6 months before the revalidation date set by the NI and will be valid for a period of 12 months only.
The minimum entry requirement is a DPO certificate issued by the NI. The original DPO certificate should be presented to Modal Training at the beginning of the course.
If the participant is completing the course for the first time, there is no minimum DP sea time requirement.
If the participant is completing the course for a second or subsequent time, a minimum of 28 days DP sea time will be required to revalidate. This DP time may be completed prior to or after the revalidation course.
For further informaiton and clarification on revalidation routes candidates are strongly urged to see Appendix E of the NAtucual Insitute's Synamic Positioning Accrediation and Certification Scheme Standard v1.1 http://www.nialexisplatform.org/media/429324/dynamic-positioning-accreditation-and-certification-scheme-standard-10th-january-2017-v11.pdf
Candidates are responsible for ensuring that they meet the entry requirements for the course. Your Log Book and certificate will be checked before training begins on the first day, and if you do meet the entry requirements you will not be allowed to continue, but you will still be charged.
