Q. Are the DP courses conducted at The DP Centre Mumbai accredited and if so by whom?
A. Yes, the DP courses run at all the C-Mar DP Centres are fully accredited by The Nautical Institute which is the only body in the world that gives accreditation to DP courses. Its guidelines for the training and certification of Dynamic Positioning Officers are accepted as the industry standard. Check this link http://www.nautinst.org/training/pdf/DPtrainingCentres.pdf

Q. Does The Dynamic Positioning Centre issue Dynamic Positioning Operators Certificates?
A. No, The Dynamic Positioning Centre which is accredited by the Nautical Institute only conducts DP Training and issues DP Course Certificates. Only the Nautical Institute can issue a Dynamic Positioning Operators Certificate.  


Q. What are the different types of Dynamic Positioning Operators Certificates?
A. There is a Limited DP Certificate which only allows you to work on a DP Class I vessel and there is an Unlimited DP Certificate which allows you to work on any Class of DP vessel.

Q. How do I upgrade my Limited Dynamic Positioning Operators Certificate?
A. Once you have completed the required DP time on a DP Class II or Class III vessel and are ready to apply for an upgrade, you have send the completed Section F in the DP Log book,  
Upgrade form and original Limited certificate to The Nautical Institute.   

Q. How long is my Dynamic Positioning Operators Certificate valid for?
A. Your certificate will remain valid as long as you operate DP systems regularly. This is defined as a minimum of six months DP watch keeping experience within the previous five years or if you work as a DP instructor at an Institute accredited training centre. Should a period of five years elapse  and you have not served aboard DP vessels, operated the DP equipment or instructed, you should recommence the training at the Simulator/Advanced course and complete all the requirements thereafter. On the attendance at the Simulator/Advanced course, the training centre will issue you with a new logbook and clearly mark this as part of the certificate renewal process.

Q. Will DP time served on DP vessels prior to doing the DP Basic Course be counted?
A. Currently any DP seatime accumulated within five years of you applying for your DP certificate, even if gained before taking the Basic course, will be counted towards the 6 months watchkeeping time required to gain a DP certificate. However, you are still required to complete 30 days seagoing familiarisation after the Basic course and a further 30 days after the Advanced. This time cannot be replaced by previous seatime. From 1st January 2012 a maximum of 30 days DP time gained prior to attending the Basic (Induction) Course will be counted in order to apply for a DP certificate.

Q. I do not have an OOW Certificate. Can I still train to become a Dynamic Positioning Officer?
A. Currently It is not a statutory requirement for you to hold an OOW certificate to be able to become a certified DPO.  The DP Operator’s training programme is open to all ranks, provided they can meet the required DP watchkeeping time.
From 1st January 2012 the Minimum qualification will be set as STCW Regulation II/1 - II/2 - II/3 Deck and Regulation III/1 – III /2 – III/3 Engine.
Alternative Deck qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Prospective DPO’s, who are in the process of training for an STCW certificate can start the DP scheme and complete all the elements, but cannot, apply for the DP certificate until they hold an appropriate STCW certificate.

Q. Can C-MAR assist me in finding a job after completing my DP courses?
A. Yes, C-MAR does provide addresses of DP companies and also will forward your CV to various owners and clients. We will be starting recruitment for offshore DP vessels from this centre shortly.
