I’m Ukrainian watch officer, who wish to become a DPO, I’m trying already for more then one year, all companies required experience on Offshore Fleet and at least DP Advance Certificate.
It’s not a problem to get a DP Induction/Basic nowadays, but where to find a place who can recruit with first DP level to get 30 days familiarization with system.
At present time I’m recruited by merchant company and serving on Container Ship. I have all necessary certificates and diploma to work as OOW.
I will be glad to hear your feedback.
Yours Ukrainian friend
