Captain John Lloyd, Chief Executive Officer, The Nautical Institute stated:
“We are encouraged that industry has recognised the importance of continuing professional development – CPD – in helping to ensure vessels operate safely. By supporting staff through ongoing learning programmes, employers can help ensure their vessels are operated to the highest safety standards.
The Nautical Institute takes great care in the approval of schemes to be used for CPD and provides full details of eligible schemes on our website. Where access to our own specialist materials and systems can help improve access, we are pleased to work with providers to help DPOs with their CPD requirements."
