LIVERPOOL, UK -- Bibby Ship Management, has launched a Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) training scheme that will provide specialist skills to the offshore marine market.
As part of the scheme, Bibby Ship Management has committed to funding and training several cadets each year.
The scheme comprises 12 to 18 months of full-time on and offshore training and a competence assurance program. Cadets will be trained as DPOs for diver support vessels in the offshore oil and gas industry and once fully trained, will join the main offshore fleet. The scheme's first recruit started the training program last month.
Bibby Ship Management will provide the funding for the scheme and onshore training will be delivered by the Sir Derek Bibby DP center, India's first fully accredited DPO training center, in Mumbai.
