Basic Dry Dock Training

26-29 May 2015, London, UK Fully Booked

 

DM Consulting's Basic Dry Dock Training is a 4-day course that covers the fundamentals and calculations of dry docking.

The course begins with the basics and safety concerns, and progresses through all phases of dry docking: preparation, docking, lay period, and undocking. The course ends with a discussion of Accidents and Incidents.

It's designed to be relevant to Dock Masters, Docking Officers, Engineers, Naval Architects, Port Engineers and others involved in the dry docking of ships and vessels. The course is presented through classroom lectures, student participation in projects and practical application exercises. The course addresses the deck plate level of practical operation needed by the dock operator and the universally accepted mathematical calculations required to carry out operations in accordance with established sound engineering practices.

"The course was excellent, straight forward and comprehensive. Instruction was great, expected "death-by-power point" but was pleasantly surprised. I am better acquainted w/drydock basic after the course and can trust the accuracy of the training based on the extensive experience of the instructors. Thank you! Very informative, very thorough."

 

"Fantastic. Really good course. Personally, I got a lot out of the course and will certainly recommend it to my work colleagues."

"Very informative. Subject matter which was dry, was taught without being boring. Class was great, learned a lot! Thank you."
