Guidance to Masters when signing off the Suitability Form in the NI logbook


 The final assessment in the DP training scheme is referent to the suitability of the DP candidate to keep a DP watch in the vessel. This assessment is to be made by the Master of the vessel at the time the candidate completes all preceding phases. The Nautical Institute recognises that the Master is most advantageously placed to make such an assessment. Please download the 'Guidance to Masters' document for reference.
