So why join a "professional association"? What's in it for you and what can you gain?
At the International Dynamic Positioning Operators Association (IDPOA) we strive to stand out from the crowd, and want to make your investment worthwhile and valuable. We have spoken to DPO's all over the world and some very clear messages emerged...you want access to the very latest and best jobs. You want news, views, gossip and discussion. You want to know how to get the very best out of your career and you want professional support and guidance.
You also want to show that you are a DPO, and that you have pride in your skills, knowledge and expertise. Add to that the fact you want to be able to tell the industry what you think - now you can do all this and more if you join IDPOA.
