We have streamlined the DP login procedure to make it easier to access your account. There is now one login whether you are applying for the first time for your DP certificate, upgrading, revalidating, converting or if you are a company with an account. The online application guides currently show the older login procedure but will be updated shortly to reflect this change.
If you are revalidating but have never had any login details do not open a new account, you can now use our new online option to reset your password and user id. Click here and you will be taken to a page where you will need to enter some verification information. Once the system has checked this, you will be sent a temporary password which will allow you to log into your account and start your application.
If you have set up your account and forgotten your password, please use our forgotten password option. You will be sent a temporary password so that you can login and update your account.
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.
