The training centre will offer the DP basic Operator and DP Simulator Courses which are now certified by the Nautical Institute. The DP Basic Operator course will mainly focus on defining the principles of DP and the components of a DP system.

The DP Simulator course will help trainees to further enhance their DP knowledge and skills through hands on experience of simulation tasks.

The location of Port Harcourt is also of strategic importance to the group and this is in line with empowering the local youth to enhance their maritime skills, thereby opening the path to improved maritime job prospects in Africa.”

Sir Charles K. Wami, CEO/MD at Charkin Group added, “We’re happy to be partnering with Unique Group to offer trainings related to dynamic positioning. The initiative has been introduced due to the demand from the growing Sub-Saharan Africa maritime and offshore industry and will include a string of DP trainings so as to diversify our own portfolio of safety and maritime courses, all accredited to the best of quality and safety standards.”
