If you have been issued with an Offshore scheme logbook with a number between 15OF0205001 to 15OF0210000, please note the training centre which originally issued that logbook will be contacting you shortly. They will supply additional pages containing the sign-off sheets for tasks that are missing in those numbered logbooks only.
These extra task sheets will need to be filled in by the DPO and Master on board and added to your application when you are ready to apply for your certificate. If you have a logbook with one of the above numbers, these four tasks will be accepted if they are signed off during Phase D DP seatime. All other tasks must be completed during Phase B, as per the scheme standard. The application will be deemed unsuccessful if the tasks in the logbook are not signed off correctly.
Please see below circular for more information and copies of the additional pages.

This re-issued handbook contains updated, full colour diagrams and photographs, and concentrates on operational functions, bridge management, communications and the correct ways to set up, test and monitor equipment. It provides a summary of good practice which can be referred to when planning and in conversation to clarify intentions. The book complements the DP Operator's scheme and is a handy reference for officers transferring to new vessel types and a refresher for operational practices.
