If you are on the Offshore Old Scheme only DP sea time gained working as a DPO on board vessels officially classed as DP by one of the classification societies will be counted towards your required time. Copies of the classification certificate should be on board the vessel and at your company headquarters. The list of class notations can be found on our here.
The following types of sea time cannot be used towards the DP time required to gain a DP certificate under the Old Offshore scheme.
• Standby – on non DP mode (or in simulator mode)
• Sea time on board POSMOOR vessels
