                              LOG BOOK GUIDE


The following sample log book is a guideline and designed to help you complete
your log book correctly before sending it into The Nautical Institute.

To prevent delays in processing your application, please make sure you read this
document carefully to fully understand the requirements.

Once you believe your log book is correctly completed please send it in to The
Nautical Institute with a covering letter, making sure the following details are
included

!   Your current home address
!   The address you would like your documents returned to (if different)
!   Valid email address (please inform us if this email is temporary or a ship address)
!   Contact telephone number

together with any supporting evidence (eg. additional DP seatime not entered in
your log book (see DP Familiarisation and Watchkeeping for further details))

Please send in your log book as early as possible as athough we do endeavour to
process applications within four weeks, sometimes for reasons beyond our control
they may take much longer to process. The sooner you apply for a certificate, the
sooner we can process your application.

The Nautical institute is not responsible for any loss of log books/documents while in
transit. We therefore recommend that you send your log book to us by
courier/special delivery and arrange to have it returned to you by the same method.

The issuance of replacement documents incur the following charges, plus an
administrative charge of 15%:

!Certificate     £50

                                   It is very important that you

                                   preferably in BLOCK

E. DP Watchkeeping Experience - Notes

Each entry must have both “Joined” and “Left” dates, otherwise it will only be
counted as 1 day.

All entries must also be signed by the Master and bear the vessel’s stamp.

If a vessel does not have an official stamp, then you should write the vessel’s name
where the ships’s stamp should be and either

a) Enclose your Seaman’s/Discharge Book (original or certified copy)
b) obtain a letter from your shipping company stating your sea record, including the
   vessel names and the start and end dates of each trip.

Please do not sign any of these documents yourself as they will not be accepted as
evidence.

Seatime Reduction
Practical watchkeeping seatime can be reduced by taking intensive simulator
courses, however, they cannot count towards more than 50% of the required DP
seatime.

Multiple courses can be taken, but you must have at least 40 days DP seatime
between each course.

Please also note the following restrictions:
! These courses cannot replace the 30 days DP familiarisation time
! Watchkeeping entries cannot end with an intensive simulator course. There
   must be at least one month’s practical DP seatime as the final entry in your log
   book before applying for your certificate.
! These courses cannot be used to replace any of the 60 days required when
   upgrading from a Limited to a Full DP certificate.

Calculating Watchkeeping Time

Please use the information below to calculate whether you qualify for a Limited or
Full/Unlimited DP certificate.

(These calculations do not include the 30 days familiarisation time)

DP1 Vessels only
180 days watchkeeping on board DP1 vessels = Limited certificate


DP2 Vessels only
180 days watchkeeping on board DP2 or 3 vessels = Full/Unlimited certificate

Mixed Class vessels
If you have served on board various class vessels and want to obtain a
Full/Unlimited certificate then

Watchkeeping time must include at least 60 days DP2 or 3 time

DP1 vessels are equal to ½ a day
DP2 or 3 vessels are equal to 1 day

eg. If you have 85 DP2 days then you will need 190 days DP1 time to qualify for a
certificate.

                        190 ÷ 2 = 95
                         85     = 85
                                 ——
                                 180
                                 ——

Your last logged seatime before applying for a DP certificate must be on board a DP2
or 3 vessel.

Seatime Validity Period
Past DP sea experience you have gained prior to taking the Basic course can be
counted towards your total watchkeeping time as long as
! You have certified evidence of your DP seatime
! It is within the five year validity period
(Please note that even if you have in excess of 180 days past experience you will still
be required to complete at least 2 months sea experience after you have completed
the Advanced course.
