772 Dynamic Positioning (Nautical Institute) Sea Time Reduction Course
Nautical Institute Approved Sea Time Reduction (DP STR) Dynamic Positioning Course
Successful completion of the 5 day Sea Time Reduction course will reward the student with a reduction of 30 days from their phase D sea time requirement and may be taken directly after the DP Advanced Simulator #771 Course.
The DP Sea Time Reduction course is an opportunity for the DP trainee to spend extended and intense periods of time on DP station keeping. This 5 day course will prepare future DPO’s to confidently handle operations across a number of industries and vessel types, such as:
- Offshore Supply
- Floating Accommodation
- Saturation Dive Support
- Shuttle Tanker
- Passenger Cruise
- Drilling Rig
- Offshore Wind Turbine Maintenance
This course will challenge the trainee to enhance, consolidate and demonstrate:
- Their knowledge of the DP system and additional equipment and instruments,
- Their situational awareness,
- Communication and teamwork skills,
- Ability to analyze trends and pre-empt problems before they arise,
- Ability to evaluate and respond to alarms, faults and emergencies with calm, reason and confidence.
Unlike other training providers, the MPT STR course places the student into a supervisory role as Senior DPO to undertake all aspects of operational planning, including worksite approach and emergency response. All exercises are carried out in a state of the art class A, Nautical Institute approved full-mission bridge simulator. These student-led scenarios are based off real-life DP incidents and include informational discussion and debrief where the trainee can compare their own decisions and actions in those same situations.
