Dynamic Positioning Advanced


• Dynamic Positioning Advanced (Simulator) Course (300)

This four-day course covers practical operation of the DP system, Simulated DP operations including errors faults & failures, DP alarms, warnings and emergency procedures. Used extensively in the offshore industry, dynamic positioning equipment can be found onboard vessels requiring precise positioning such as drilling, cable and pipe laying, dive and ROV support and FPSO vessels and Jack-up Barges. Dynamic positioning equipment is also used extensively on vessels and units operating in deep water and areas of environmental sensitivity where traditional anchoring techniques are not possible.

Dynamic Positioning Advanced (Simulator) Course (300) can be taken for current DPO’s whom need to Revalidate their current Nautical Institute certificate and do not have the required 150 days to revalidate their current Nautical Institute certificate.
