International Dynamic Positioning Operators Association

The International Dynamic Positioning Operators Association (IDPOA) is a not-for-profit, professional organization for Dynamic Positioning Operators (DPO's) and related companies worldwide. We work to enhance and improve the professional interests of DPO's by providing a focal point for news, industry debate, career support services, training and recruitment. We are able to finally bring together the thoughts of DPO's to finally provide a long overdue representative voice to the maritime industry. Qualified DPO's are invited to join as fellows of IDPOA (fDPO), while individuals with an interest and link to dynamic positioning may also join as members (mDPO). Take a look around the site and see what fits you best. In addition there are membership categories for shipping companies, training centres and equipment manufacturers. We are growing by working hard for you, our members, providing the very best information, latest job opportunities and career guidance in one place. Ensuring the shipping industry will never again have to simply guess what the people at the DP desk are really thinking or going through. So if you do DP...join IDPOA today and add your voice and support to your professional association.
