We are delighted to announce that our Designated Person Ashore (DPA) training course was recently awarded ‘Recognition’ by the Nautical Institute as part of its Continuous Professional Development scheme.
The Nautical Institute, which serves as an international representative body for maritime professionals, provides a wide range of services to the industry and its membership, including representation at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
‘Recognition’ demonstrates that the Designated Person Ashore training course meets the high professional standards set by the Nautical Institute. ‘Recognition’ by the Nautical Institute verifies that processes, procedures, methods and techniques to deliver the training are approved and in line with the internationally accepted requirements for DPA training.
The aim of our Designated Person Ashore course is to fulfil the requirements of IMO MSC MEPC7/Circ. 6, raising awareness of current themes in safety and environmental compliance whilst also promoting the sharing of industry best practice. Delegates will be updated on the issues that organisations have with ISM Code Compliance by ChartCo Trainers, providing ample opportunity to engage with practitioners. At the end of the course delegates will have the enhanced underpinning knowledge needed to make objective decisions about their Safety Management Systems.
The course is a highly interactive three day programme, designed for current DPA’s and those who may deputise for the DPA. It is also highly relevant for those within the company management structure who need to fully understand the role and responsibilities of the DPA, and their safety and organisational compliance with the ISM Code.
ChartCo Training offers a range of maritime training solutions which assist owners and operators to achieve safe, secure and compliant maritime operations. Many of the courses can be tailored to suit specific customer requirements, and can be delivered at a suitable place and time. The range of courses on offer include flag approved statutory courses, as well as a suite of ‘awareness’ courses covering safety, security, environmental, navigational and port state control topics.
