Fort Lauderdale-based Maritime Professional Training announced that it received accreditation from The Nautical Institute as a Dynamic Positioning Training facility.

“We are extremely proud and pleased to be leading the way in providing one of the latest and most advanced facilities, offering the highest standard of training and providing a level of support and practical exposure for our DP students that will be unmatched,” Maritime Professional Training chief operating officer Ted Morley said in a statement.

“We have made a substantial investment in our facility and believe that the combination of cutting-edge technology and DP instructors who are NI-certified, as well as experienced and licensed at the highest unlimited tonnage levels, positions us to offer the most comprehensive realistic DP training available,” he added.

Maritime Professional Training will offer the basic DP course and the advanced DP course, and will issue certificates of course completion, which students need to qualify for application to the Nautical Institute for certification.

Maritime Professional Training has trained thousands of commercial mariners, yachting professionals and enthusiasts for more than 30 years.
