ADPS provide clients with a variety of methods of dynamic positioning training and familiarisation to suit every need.

MENTOR Training

Cost effective methods for clients new to the DP industry or with new build vessels. We are able to address the shortfall in practical experience for onboard marine personnel embarking on DP operations.

For short periods mentor trainer's can provide onboard training whilst at the same time keeping the clients vessel's operational until their crews have the necessary experience to take over.

Formulation of DP training centres

ADPS act as consultants to promote / propose training systems and training layouts in order for the client to be able to undertake DP training in a financially efficient manner.

ADPS are able to:

  • Provide the training materials
  • Train the client's proposed trainers
  • Conduct the first few training courses
  • Obtain nautical institute accreditation

Familiarisation Training

2 or 3 day course of presentations and workshops.

Aimed at:

The Course includes:
