On board training
The use of dynamic positioning units has increased by nearly sevenfold in last 10 years. This dramatic increase has been driven by deepwater offshore activities and DP technology advancements. The operational safety of DP units has also been continuously improved over the years. However, the expansion of DP application both in numbers and in range of activities now presents challenges. One of the major challenges is the human factor and particular the on board DP skills and DP experience.
To make sure that the DP operators on board are trained to the best possible standard, SMSC has developed the “Onboard Training System” (OTS) and the DP CAP™.
The aim of both concepts is to offer the most valuable, realistic and practical on board training tools for DP operators.
