Dynamic Positioning (DP) Sea Time Reduction (STR) course
The DP Sea Time Reduction (STR) course allows candidates to reduce the amount of sea time required from 60 days to 30 days, in phase D of the Nautical Institute DP Operator's Training Scheme.
Candidates who started the training scheme prior to January 2015 will have their sea time requirement reduced by 42 days (from 180 to 138).
This course allows candidates to spend extended and intense periods of time on simulated DP station keeping and should challenge the candidate to enhance, consolidate and demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have gained through the first three phases of the NI's DPO Training Scheme.
Predominantly practical training on Modal Training's KONGSBERG K-Sim Class A DP simulators.
This course is delivered in English and requires candidates to have a good standard of verbal and written English, including industry relevant terminology.
Candidates must have completed Phases A, B and C of the NI DPO Training Scheme. Note that this course can be taken immediately after Phase C - The Nautical Institute Dynamic Positioning (DP) Simulator Course
