This volume was prepared and officially released by IMCA in order to reflect the recognized international maritime industry standard addressing the training, competence as well as professional experience that is required to be possessed by all key personnel involved in DP, i.e. dynamic positioning, operations on the vessel equipped with the DPS. The document has been designed for ships that are engaged in marine operations where the accidental loss of position might easily result in loss of human life, severe pollution to the marine environment, major structural damage to the vessel, and economic loss. The DP operators are requested to attend the formal training courses and also gain necessary practical experience; in addition to what is stated above, they should all meet the associated certification requirements. This publication is also providing some guidance relating to the structural familiarization procedure for the above mentioned personnel joining a vessel with DP system, or starting a new project. Moreover, it also provides associated practices as well as principles for refresher training. In short, the book will give the useful guidance for assurance of the professional competence as well as assessment requirements in the maritime industry. Would suggest a copy of the booklet is kept on board of any DP vessel.
