I have just completed my 30 dp days familiarization onboard. (new logbook)
All familiarization tasks pp21-27 and competent’s officer initial validation p.28 were signed by my captain.
What makes me worry is my captain already signed it but he don’t have a DP license yet. We got confused with this ‘COC or DP cert’.
When I read the guidelines for filling up this new DP logbook A5, what I understood is that those sections must be signed only by a DP licensed officer.
I am still onboard, what must I do with those sections? I’m afraid this will give me headaches when I will finish and apply for DP license.
I have found a PDF file on Nautical institue (link: http://www.nautinst.org/download.cfm?docid=DBCB1258-7093-4F02-8200E95A164981A9 ) Seagoing Familiarisation Watchkeeping Declaration.
Do I have to secure a copy of this file and have it signed by my DPO mates while I’m still onboard?
Thanks and best regards!
