DP RevalidationThe course which lasts for 5 dasys, is intended for those who have already been issued a DPO certificate from The NI but are unable to revalidate their DPO certificate due to insufficient DP sea time. The overall course aim is to update the DPOs with the latest rules and regulations, position references and sensors, known DP incidents and lessons learned. This course consists of a number of learning modules. Each module states the learning objective(s) the participant work to meet by studying the module. The course has been developed according to The NI’s requirements.
DP for subsea peersonnelThis course is a 3 day version of the DP Induction course (5 days) and takes place in full-scale simulators and class room. The content is an extraction of the course with focus on offshore operations utilizing DP. This course is meant to give a broad overview of DP as a technical system and what it can be used for, as well as the standards, Class demands and usage in offshore operations. The course is for personnel from the subsea industry such as COOs, Engineering Managers, engineers (all levels), company clients, Offshore Managers, Shift Supervisors, ROV Supervisors and Survey Technicians. No nautical education is needed to participate in this course, but Offshore experience and knowledge of vessel operations is of great benefit. After the course, the participants should be able to explain the principles of dynamic positioning operations and it’s technical structure. The participants will gain an understanding of DP principles and equipment, as well as be able to plan and use the different modes and possibilities in a DP system. The participants will also have an overview of DP Class demands and safety factors according to IMO MSC/circ.645 and plan the use of these in HAZOP/RAs/setup/operations. The course will also give examples of ASOG (Activity Specific Operational Guidelines), CAMO (Critical Activity Mode) and vessel operational scenarios.” The course follows extractions of the DPO training schemes and documentation, and we are using Kongsberg DP systems and manuals for the practical simulation exercises. Standard Industrial Guidelines are used to ensure up to date operational standards are followed.
DP Introduction (for personnel without nautical background)After the course, that lasts for one day, the successful participants should be able to: - Have acquired knowledge of the principles of DP. - Have acquired a basic understanding of how to set up a DP system. - Have understanding of the practical operation of associated equipment, including position reference systems. - Be able to recognize the various alarm, warning and information messages. - Be able to relate the DP installation to the ship system, including (but not limited to) power supply, maneuvering facility, available position reference systems and nature of work. - Be able to relate DP operations to the existing environmental conditions of wind, sea state, current/tidal stream and vessel movement.

In our integrated subsea simulator we can provide anything from ROV pilot training (in our Kystdesign ROV control room) and familiarization to complete dry runs of real operations. Such dry runs include bridge, crane, ROV and Shift Supervisor working in the same environment. Allthough Simsea has an extencive library of simulator models, dry runs will require modelling. Dependant on the learning objectives the customer might want to model subsea equipment, infrastructure, sebed as well as even ships. Because of this, the planning time for dry runs could be 3-6 months.
Complex operations in simulator
In our integrated subsea simulator we can provide our customers with the possibility to carry out dry-runs of complex operations. A dry-run in a realistic environment will reduce the cost of the project as it reduces offshore time and risk for stops in the operation. We can provide modeling services, familiarization, team training and a dedicated room for observation for project personnel. Click here for more information.
Our ROV simulators are from Kystdesign and Fugro. On these simulators we can offer familiarization, training, assesment and testing etc. The ROVs can be used on their own or as a part of our integrated subsea simulator. Please contact us for more information.
