Commenting on the news, Jim Cullen, Technical Director, IMCA, said: “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted, and it is an honour to be seen as one of the best maritime training providers by Safety4Sea.”  

“We’ve put a lot of time and effort into the App to ensure its success, working with the industry so the content is both relevant and accessible and aligned closely with the Nautical Institute to ensure it meets their requirements for CPD for DP Operators.”  

“It is becoming ever more popular, with hundreds of new users joining us every month. They’re attracted by the App’s ease of use, the access to DP Guidance and case studies, and the benefit that all users maintain their technical knowledge of the latest industry guidance and operational best practices to meet the requirements for revalidation of their DPO certification; all from choosing our service for their CPD requirements.”
