I have around 4 months of DP time on a DP2 vessel from 2006. I left the industry without taking any courses.
I have since taken the induction in March 2011 and have 115 days on a DP3 vessel and some 45 days on a DP1. This past March (2012) I took the advanced class and have some questions about my logbook:
Does the Nautical Institute grandfather mariners who took the induction pre-2012 in anyway? In other words do they not hold some mariners to the new standards because of past experience?
Will any time be accepted from my DP experience in 2006
Can I log my “familiarization” time in the watch keeping section?
Thanks for the help!
