the nautical institute at [I] will have the information available to answer your questions. the are the orginisation that certifies DPO’s. You will need 2 classes to get started and there are several schools that offer these. Hopefully you can get your company to pick up the tab. I recently heard a runour that at least a 500 ticket was needed to serve as a DPO, but havent seen anything to confirm it yet. Best of luck.
