The objective was to collect input from the industry through an interactive process to fine-tune the expectations related to competence development and certification for Dynamic Positioning Operators in general and to lay the foundation for a Recommended Practice for global DPO certification based on sound certification principles and industry expectations.

The workshop participants represented various aspects from the industry from vetting to ship owners involved in DP-related work (incl. shuttle tankers), training providers, test centers and associations from various parts of the world (Europe, USA, Australia). This ensured input in the discussions from different angles.
