Kongsberg Maritime and DNV DP Operator Training

Kongsberg Maritime and DNV DP operator training scheme enhances competence and reduces time to certification

Kongsberg Maritime was the first global maritime training provider to offer the DNV approved Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) training scheme at its training centres worldwide. The KONGSBERG Training Scheme for DP Operators is based on a combination of new and established DNV training standards, with the learning process designed by Kongsberg Maritime.

The scheme is a step-change in the critical area of DPO training, with teaching and assessor competence, and the use of advanced simulators forming the platform for training high quality DPOs in a significantly reduced timeframe. This acknowledging that people have different perception of learning. The KONGSBERG Training Scheme for DP Operators focuses on competence training and competence assessment developed using the latest methods developed in the science of education. Instructors will work much closer with individual students throughout the duration of the scheme.

After completing the training program students leave with a DP certificate only by passing the mandatory theoretical and practical independent assessment. Implemented to ensure the competence of DPOs leaving the course, the exam is a significant change in approach to DPO training, which until now has not featured mandatory examinations and certification. Kongsberg Maritime is approved by DNV as the global certification body for the new scheme, which is designed to produce highly qualified and competent DPOs.

The scheme is based on a three-step program. Step-one is an intensive 10 day course, covering theory and practical elements with significant time spent on Kongsberg Maritime's cutting-edge DP and offshore training simulators. After logging the required sea-time with their employer (step-two), course participants will return to the training centre to complete their training (step-three) and take the exam. During the whole process, simulator and theoretical exercises will be used to monitor student learning levels.
