Course Aim

The Nautical Institute (NI) is introducing an alternative route to revalidation through the implementation of a revalidation course. The minimum entry requirement is a DPO certificate issued by the NI. The course 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 DPO’s with the latest rules and regulations, position references and sensors, known DP incidents and lessons learned.
