DP training from Videotel

Videotel Marine International reports that it has developed a new Dynamic Positioning Basic Training Course, in conjunction with C-MAR’s The Dynamic Positioning Centre.

The course is aligned with the Nautical Institute DP Basic/Induction course syllabus and covers all areas of DP, including system architecture and basic principles, together with modes of operation, operational procedures and risk considerations.

The system contains mixed media in the form of text, images, animations, video and audio.

On completion of the course, which Videotel says reduces the training time required at a C-MAR DP Centre, users intending to become DP Operators will have sufficient understanding of the principles and practice of DP to undertake simulator exercises as the next step towards gaining a recognised DP qualification from the Nautical Institute.

The Dynamic Positioning programme is available as an online course and should take approximately six hours to complete.

“A basic knowledge of DP is becoming increasingly important to a wide range of maritime professionals,” said Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel.

“The rise of the offshore oil and gas industry and its constantly changing demands has brought about great developments in the field of DP. Yet interestingly this growth is not now confined to those industries, and at least a basic knowledge of DP has become important to many, both based at sea and based on-shore.”
