Description: This document provides guidance on the Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) training scheme for providers wishing to be accredited to deliver training.
The DP Accreditation and Certification schemes were developed by The Nautical Institute, working in association with flag states, the oil industry, the diving industry and offshore contractors to establish internationally accepted standards. It has been operational for the past 30 years.
In September 1983, the scheme was adopted as an internationally accepted standard for any DSV or other DP- operated vessel working within any designated 500 meter zone at any offshore installation by 105 out of 110 oil industry and major oil company representatives at a working conference in Aberdeen. It was rapidly recognised by the oil Industry on a worldwide basis.
Less than a month after the Aberdeen conference, the scheme was accepted as an official guideline by the then Minister of Energy for the UK North Sea operations. Shortly after, it was also adopted by other North Sea operating flag states.
The Nautical Institute has developed this accreditation standard in view of the IMO resolution to include DP training within Part B of the STCW Code & Convention (APPENDIX A). These standards have been developed and kept up-to-date with the full engagement and cooperation of all key stakeholders by working through the Dynamic Positioning Training Executive Group (DPTEG) and its Regional Training Provider (RTP) groups.
