    I find the difference between the DP trainees' answers and the DPOs' answers hilarious.

    The guys that have their certificate already (and got it back when simply being on a DP classed boat counted towards a day of DP sea time) say there is no need for sea time reduction courses, while the trainees suffering the new regulations say there is.

    Also, the guys with their certificate already say there is no pressing need for certified DPOs...

    Does anyone know where in Europe (preferably the UK) the reduction courses be done and how much they cost?

    As I recall, the Nautical Institute article stated that there are five or six approved seatime reduction courses. In a quick search, I appear to have found five.

    I sent all five of those DP Course providers an email asking for information and costs. I asked if the courses are offered in English, and I asked if they offer seafarer's a discount who are paying out of pocket without employer sponsorship.

    I'll post whatever I find out.

    *******************

    Perhaps someone who is a member of the Nautical Institute could send them an email asking for a current and complete list of NI approved DP Seatime Reduction courses, and post it here.

    They say on the page you linked that the course can be conducted in either Danish or English.

    I may need to take a vacation. I've always wanted to see Denmark...
