Fully remote DP training courses launched by Kongsberg

Kongsberg has announced the launch of its first basic Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) courses to be available fully remotely over the internet from start to finish, including the practical part of the training.

Using virtual machines, students can engage in practical exercises with a remote K-Pos trainer, in addition to completing theory and assessment modules online.

Kongsberg says that the remote courses are fully compliant with the DNV GL DPO preparation course and have been approved by The Nautical Institute for its DP Induction course, the first remotely-delivered DPO training to receive this approval.

Applicable to all vessels and industries using DP, the course material is made available online, with competence assessments at each stage provided either by Kongsberg or by a third party.
