Dynamic Positioning & Associated System Training
Alstom Technical Training Center is validated
by the Nautical Institute and exists to provide the very best in DP training.
The following are some items we hope you will consider, and allow us to
fulfill your DP training needs.
Quality Training. The final training objective is to provide an appropriate
skill and comfort level through an extensive "hands on" approach to ensure
proper and safe equipment operation and quality Training and Troubleshooting.
Experienced Instructors. Our Professional instructors have over 50 years of
combined technical training experience. This is important from the
standpoint of their ability to make detailed and complex information
easily understood by student personnel. The Instructors also have extensive field
experience with respect to the operation of DP vessels & systems as well as trouble
shooting, repair, and Maintenance of DP and associated electronic systems.
Simulation Equipment. The Training Center has been equipped with a large array
of DPS 900 and ADP system simulation equipment for operator as well as
maintenance training. The idea is to maximize the amount of time each student
has in actually operating or trouble shooting the system.
During Operator Training for example, due to efficient location of simulator
rooms, Idle time is reduced to Zero with a average class of four students. Each
simulator compartment is isolated with a full range of communication, alert light,
sound, printer and monitoring equipment. When conducting a trouble shooting
and repair exercise during system training maintenance training, the observer
team has the ability to view details of the tests conducted by the trouble shooting
team, through special lighting and mini cameras located inside the DP console, then
displayed on screen via a video projector.
Course Tuition. includes lunch each day of class, refreshments, all course materials,
additionally, for operator personnel includes The Nautical Institute DP Operator
Log Book, and Nautical Institute DP Certificate processing Fee.
