Louisiana OKs Use of Grants for DP Assessments

Companies can use IWTP state grants to cover costs of OSVDPA assessments   The Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) has approved use of Incumbent Worker Training Program (IWTP) grants to cover the cost of Offshore Service Vessel Dynamic Positioning Authority, Inc. (OSVDPA) Phase 4 Assessments.    “It’s great to see the Louisiana Workforce Commission recognize the OSVDPA’s assessments as an important part of the professional development of mariners,” said OSVDPA Executive Director, Aaron Smith. “Many Louisiana-based companies rely heavily on IWTP grant funding and allowing those funds to be put towards OSVDPA assessments is a testament to Louisiana’s commitment to having the safest and most competent mariners in the industry.”   In addition to two classroom courses and two periods of on board experience gathering, the OSVDPA requires every mariner, regardless of his or her experience or prior certifications, to pass an OSVDPA Assessment before being issued his or her OSVDPA DPO Certificate. These practical assessments can be completed on board a vessel or on a simulator. The assessments are designed to measure real-world dynamic positioning (DP) operations, and are tailored to the type of vessel and operations an individual mariner typically encounters.
