So I took the DP induction course and completed my logbook familiarisation tasks and accumulated 50 DP days back in 2013 as a cadet. Then everything changed and I needed an OICNW endorsement to take the simulator course. Needless to say, my 5 year timeline has elapsed and I have not received my DPO cert nor taken the advanced simulator course. Am I correct with the new scheme that I need to retake the induction course, get 60 DP days, take the advanced simulator course, get 60 More DP days and complete an entire new logbook? Essentially completely start over right? None of that is transferable correct?
Also, is there any downside to going to OSVDPA route as opposes to the NI?
