DP Simulator Course

The DP simulator Course is essentially practical and consists mainly of a series of simulator exercises to be supplemented by theoretical discussions. Trainees will be given an opportunity to give feedback on their training needs during classroom tuition. The trainees will work with practical scenarios based on real operations, training on planning and executing specified DP operations under varying simulated conditions. Each exercise will be started by a session for briefing and planning, then by simulation of DP operations and be followed by a debriefing and group discussion led by the instructor, to analyse the actions and decisions of the trainees. Exercises will produce the greatest impression of realism. The practical exercises will cover the operation of the DP system while introducing errors, faults, failures, alarms and applying emergency procedures. This course is intended for those who have completed the DP Induction Course and a minimum of 60 DP Sea time days. These trainees should already have a good grounding in the practice and principles of dynamic positioning through their experiences in class and at sea. After this course, the aspiring DPO will now have to accumulate 60 days of DP watch keeping experience to be able to apply for a DP certificate.

Azimuth Stern Drive

This course is essentially practical and consists mainly of a series of simulator exercises. The exercises increase in complexity as the course progresses and as trainees become familiar with the maneuvering characteristics of the ship model and its responses in various conditions. Exercises are controlled by the instructor, and initially, allow the trainees to become familiar with the equipment, the controls and the instrumentation provided.
