Dynamic Positioning

Nautical Institute Accredited Courses

Dynamic Positioning Induction

This course provides participants with basic knowledge of Dynamic Positioning (DP), the principles and practical use of DP systems.

Dynamic Positioning Simulator (Advanced)

This course provides personnel engaged in the Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) training scheme with further insight, experience, and confidence in performing offshore operations under Dynamic Positioning (DP) control.

Dynamic Positioning Revalidation

For participants, who hold a recognized Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) Certificate issued by The Nautical Institute (NI), but do not have the required 150 days DP Sea time to revalidate through the conventional route.

Dynamic Positioning Refresher + Competence Assessment

For participants, who hold a recognized Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) Certificate issued by The Nautical Institute (NI) and required to refresh their knowledge about DP or need to completed high DP simulator because they are on DP 24/7.

Enhanced Azipull Manoeuvring

This course provides participants with basic knowledge of Rolls Royce Icon Dynamic Positioning (DP) equipment and to provide an insight into the principles and practice of operating Azipull propulsion units.

Dynamic Positioning Verification of Competency

The rationale of this assessment process is to enable participants to be assessed against an internationally recognized standard. This will achieve the twin aim of proving the generic competence of the Dynamic Positioning (DP) team and provide the client with confidence that risk has been mitigated.

Dynamic Positioning Familiarisation / Awareness

The course is designed to provide an insight into Dynamic Positioning (DP). It outlines DP system components and the capabilities of DP equipped vessels. Course participants will become aware of the DP system’s individual elements and their practical use, as well as the effects of system failures and the concept of redundancy. The course follows the structure outlined in IMCA M 117 Rev.2.

Engineers

Dynamic Positioning Maintenance for Engineers/Kpos & Icon

Participants completing this course will gain the IMCA prerequisite theoretical knowledge and some practical skills experience to support the tasks, duties, and responsibilities of either a Marine Engineer or Electro technical officer on a Dynamic Positioning (DP) vessel.

Offshore Crane Courses

Offshore Crane Operator
STAGE 1

The Stage 1 Offshore Crane Operator course aims to give participants with minimal or no experience the fundamentals to work with and or around offshore cranes in a safe and efficient manner.

Offshore Crane Operator
STAGE 2

The Stage 2 Offshore Crane Operator course aims to give participants the knowledge required to operate an offshore crane in a safe and efficient manner. This is achieved using a bank of scenarios on the offshore crane simulator and by demonstration from experienced offshore crane operators.

Offshore Crane Operator
STAGE 3

The Stage 3 Offshore Crane Operator Assessment is an internationally recognised and accepted assessment strategy for offshore crane operators. Candidates will be required to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and practical skills to successfully complete the assessment process and be deemed competent to work safely and effectively unsupervised.

PMASUP305 – OPERATE OFFSHORE CRANES

The course is designed for participants either currently working in an offshore lifting team or wishing to enter the industry with the basic skills and knowledge required to perform confidently and safely.

PMASUP305 – Operate Offshore Cranes Refresher

(2 year guideline)

The Offshore Crane Operator Re-Assessment is used to assess the continued competence of offshore crane operators. BS 7121 Part 11: Offshore Cranes states that an operator’s competence should be re-assessed every 2 years and the Health and Safety Executive has acknowledged that practical simulation exercises play a part in complying with this standard.

Offshore Crane Operator
STAGE 2 REASSESMENT

The Stage 2 Offshore Crane Operator Re-Assessment is used to assess the continued competence of offshore crane operators. BS 7121 Part 11: Offshore Cranes states that an operators competence should be re-assessed every 2 years and the Health and Safety Executive has acknowledged that practical simulation exercises play a part in complying with this standard.

Offshore Crane Operator
STAGE 3 REASSESMENT

The Stage 3 Offshore Crane Operator Re-Assessment is used to assess the continued competence of offshore crane operators. BS 7121 Part 11: Offshore Cranes states that an operator’s competence should be re-assessed every 2 years and the Health and Safety Executive has acknowledged that practical simulation exercises play a part in complying with this standard.
