From January 2024, the requirements to revalidate DP certificates will be changing. To make sure that DP operators keep pace with the developing standards in a fast-changing industry, DPOs renewing their certificates will now be asked to demonstrate Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as well as experience. One of the routes is to complete an NI Accredited CPD programme, as well as completing the NI Revalidation exam. To make it easier for DPO’s to complete the Revalidation exam element of the requirements, we have added the function of booking it directly from their NI AlexisPlatform accounts. Below we have provided the following guides to help you follow the process of booking the exam, as well as how to complete your online application to revalidate your certificate.

Please note that the revalidation process is now online only, and you no longer need to send your documents into The Nautical Institute unless specifically requested to do so.
