Maintaining your DP Qualification in a New, Simple Manner

From 01 JAN 2024, Maersk Training introduces a new way of maintaining DPO or DPVM certification in collaboration with the Nautical Institute (NI).  

Instead of having to re-take the full on-site training programme every five years, the DPO/DPVM will take an e-learning module with Maersk Training every year for five years, followed by an online exam hosted by NI. Passing each of the five different e-learnings, as well as the online exam, will make the DPO/DPVM eligible for renewal of the certification. The sea-time prerequisites will remain in place and must be documented to NI. 

You can sign up as a DP officer or as an employer.
