    Singapore DP Centre validated by Nautical Institute

    News // April 25, 2003
    The Dynamic Positioning Centre, which is based in London in the UK and Singapore Maritime Academy have announced the successful validation of the newly opened dynamic positioning (DP) training school in Singapore by the Nautical Institute (NI), the professional association for qualified mariners.

    The Singapore Dynamic Positioning Centre located adjacent to Republic of Singapore Yacht Club opened its doors to students wishing to train as DP Operators in March following the signing of a co-operation agreement with the internationally recognised Singapore Maritime Academy which is part of the Singapore Polytechnic.

    Following a visit by the Nautical Institute earlier this month to verify the DP training centre, Ian Giddings, Education and Training Manager presented Colin Soanes, Senior DP Instructor of The Dynamic Positioning Centre with a Nautical Institute certificate recognising Singapore's successful achievement of the required training standards.

    As well as four-day induction and advanced courses, the DP Centre offers familiarisation and appreciation courses, enabling clients to keep abreast of new standards and techniques, and to equip those who are not familiar with the DP industry with the appropriate knowledge and skills.
