We are the only accredited in Italy  (about 95 in the world) to make courses for ships involved in operations using Dynamic Positioning Systems.
OSV (code)
It is the code for operations with the ‘supply vessel’ and it is also the basic training for all the personnel embarked on the above mentioned units.
DP (Dynamic Position)
It is the Dynamic Positioning System, which enabled the ships to operate in every wind or sea conditions, remaining stopped in their position without the use of anchors.
The DP Basic Operator course is the first phase of the Nautical Institute (NI) DP Operator Certification Scheme. The course participants will be issued with the NI Dynamic Positioning Operator’s Log Book at the end of the Basic Operator Course.
The Minimum qualification will be set as STCW Regulation II/1 – II/2 – II/3 Deck and Regulation III/1 – III /2 – III/3 Engine and Regulation III/6 for ETOs

In order to issue the new logbook to the student who has passed the online examination must came to the Training Center with the following additional documents:
  • 2 photo 35mmx45mm (to insert in the DP Logbook issued by Centre)
  • Personal details (Address-Country-Postcode-Email-Phone Number-Date of birth-Passport number-CoC number-CoC Country-CoC date issue)
 
The examination system has been developed by the Nautical Institute and will assess students on knowledge of the principles of Dynamic Positioning.
In order to be awarded a certificate of completion for the Induction Course the trainee must pass an online assessment at the training centre. The exam is composed of multiple choice questions and shall be completed in 1 hour 15 minutes. The online assessment will consist of 40 questions and shall be completed with a pass mark of 70%.
Students who fail at the first attempt are allowed to have another two attempts within six months of the first attempt; however, the second attempt must be undertaken within 96 hours of the first attempt. Failing these three initial attempts, the student is required to repeat the Induction Course and undertake the assessment again.
The exam is mandatory from 1st February 2013 and the students must pass the assessment in order to take the Simulator/Advanced course. Result will be sent automatically to the Nautical Institute though integration of an online web systems developed by Test-Reach.
A pass result will be required for student to obtain a DP Basic Certificate.
HOW THE PROCEDURES SHOULD BE:
  1. Then the Training Center can assign for each student the Login details to open the exam after the completion of the course. (TestReach NI examination system)
  2. Students will receive their own login and password at the email address
  3. The student insert his/her login details () into the online examination system
  4. Once the Test is finished, the result is displayed. Result should be marked as pass or fail
  5. The result should be printed off and kept by Training Center.

  • Online Exam Result (only after January 2013 if applicable)
for those has started the DP Training Scheme BEFORE January 2015 with Green/Blue/Black DP Logbook:
  • Original Green/Blue/Black DP LOGBOOK with Section B and Section C completed (a minimum of 30 days documented seagoing familiarization on a DP capable vessel. There must be no more than five years between the DP Advanced Operator Course and the DP Basic Operator Course).
for those has started the DP Training Scheme FROM January 2015 with Grey DP Logbook:
  • Original Grey DP LOGBOOK with Phase B and Task Book Section completed. (There must be no more than four years between the DP Advanced Operator Course and the DP Basic Operator Course)
The DP Simulator Course has a three-part assessment process. Two parts of the process are standard assessments that are delivered across all training centre. These include the DP Set-up Practical Assessment and an online multiple-choice exam. The third part of the assessment process is the feedback given to students throughout the course, most often based on their performance on simulator exercises. This is accomplished through a formative assessment process that will vary from center to center.
Practical assessments are to be undertaken as the course progresses.
Practical Simulator:  Practical assessments will be accomplished as the course Assessment progresses.  Each candidate is required to demonstrate their competence to perform the tasks listed in the DP Set-up Practical Assessment Skills Table3.
The Control Sheet establishes the conditions under which the practical assessment occurs and the criteria against which the student’s performance will be measured.
  • The Simulator Assessment Form for the practical assessment is to be used by the instructor/assessor when conducting assessments of the demonstration of the practical skills on the simulator.
  • The instructor/assessor will observe the candidate for the demonstration of the skills listed in Nautical Institute’s DP Set-up Practical Assessment Skills Table and determine if the candidate passes or fails.
Re-Test Policy: SIMULATOR PRACTICAL TEST: The DP Set-up Practical Assessment may not be retaken; it must be passed on the first attempt. If it is not passed on the first attempt, then the Simulator Course will need to be repeated.
Online Assessment: The online assessment will be accomplished at the end of the course.
The online assessment is designed to allow the student to demonstrate knowledge of DP systems, operations, and faults and failures, by an online multiple-choice examination. The reference texts and materials will be made available for each student’s use. The online assessment is as follows: In order to be awarded a certificate of completion for the Simulator  Course, the trainee must pass an online assessment at the training center. The online assessment will consist of 30 multiple choice questions and shall be completed in one hour with a pass mark of 70%.
Students who fail at the first attempt are allowed to have another two attempts within six months of the first attempt; however, the second attempt must be undertaken within 96 hours of the first attempt. Failing these three initial attempts, the student is required to repeat the Simulator Course and undertake the assessment again.
Result will be sent automatically to the Nautical Institute through the integration of online web systems developed by Test-Reach.
Completion: On  successful  completion  of  the  Simulator  Course,  the  DP  Set-up Practical Assessment and the online assessment, the student will receive a course completion certificate and may return to sea to accumulate the sea time required for Phase D(Section E Green/blu/black logbook) of the training program.
Non-completion: If  the  student  does  not  pass  the  DP  Set-up  Practical  Assessment, he/she does not go on to take the online assessment and must retake the Simulator Course.
