Offshore

We are the only ones in Italy and in the Mediterranean (very few in the world) to make courses for ships envolved in social operations, using Dynamic Positioning Systems.

OSV (code)

It is the code for operations with the 'supply vessel' and it is also the basic training for all the personnel enbarked on the above mentioned units.


DP (Dinamic Position)

It is the Dynamic Positioning System, which enabled the ships to operate in every wind or sea contitions, remaining stopped in their position without the use of anchors.

The systems show all the ships's propellers( engine, fixed-blade screw propeller ,azimuthal screw e rudders),wich are steered by only a system from the navigation bridge.

The system allow to make special operations with submarine robots (ROV) with Divers, manoeuvres with special ships like Cables lay vessel, Pipe lay vessel, Dredges and Rock Dumpers.

We are the only ones to make operations in DP with 360° sight simulator class 1 and class 2 operations.

How the system appears on board

That's how the scheme of a DP consolle is on the sight

In it they are contained all the controls for the reference systems such as HPR LTW,FANBEAM,TOUTWIRE,GPS ARTEMIS,all controls of the boarding sensors and all the display of the boarding systems so that the operator can always check the position and the status of the propellers.


IMAT è un accreditato centro di formazione per Operatori su unità/navi DP secondo le norme del Nautical Institute con sede a Londra (Il Nautical Institute è un organo Rappresentativo Internazionale per i professionisti marittimi ).
Il Nautical Institute ha gestito la formazione professionale fin dalla sua nascita a metà degli anno ’80 e in collaborazione con gli organi internazionali del settore ha sviluppato i criteri di formazione. Esso amministra la Certificazione del Dp Operator in comune con gli accreditati Centri di Formazione.

Informazioni per Corso Operatore di Base e/o Avanzato :

The Institute will implement the following criteria for entry onto the DP Operators Training Scheme:
  • The Minimum qualification will be set as STCW Regulation II/1 - II/2 - II/3 Deck and Regulation III/1 – III /2 – III/3 Engine. Alternative appropriate marine vocational qualifications will be considered on a “case by case” basis.
  • Prospective DPO’s (Prospective DPO: is a cadet* ), who are in the process of training for an STCW certificate can start the DP scheme and complete Induction (basic) course and 30 days Familiarisation only. The Simulator (Advanced) course and watchkeeping training can only be completed after they hold an appropriate STCW certificate of competency.
*Cadet: is the person who is in training to obtain the STCW Certificate of Competence.
**Trainee DPO: is the person who is starting the NI DP scheme and holds a STCW Certificate of Competence.

DP BASIC OPERATOR COURSE

The DP Basic Operator course is the first phase of the Nautical Institute (NI) DP Operator Certification Scheme. The course participants will be issued with the NI Dynamic Positioning Operator's Log Book at the end of the Basic Operator Course.
