In this third edition the content has been revised to take account of advances in technology and its application aboard DP-equipped vessels. It is a practical guide for serving and trainee DPOs and trainers, so concentrates on operational functions, setting up and testing equipment, bridge management and communications.
The handbook is the flagship text for the DP Training Scheme administered by The Nautical Institute and provides an indispensable reference for all seafarers who need to understand and use this sophisticated technology.
Captain John Lloyd FNI, CEO of The Nautical Institute, said: “The DP Operator’s Handbook is the go-to source of information for new operators under training and also a valuable source of reference for more experienced operators.”
