  • IMCA DP Reflection - covering all aspects of DP from within the Secretariat, as well as key areas of the DP Committee’s ongoing programme;
  • Assurance & Training - covering DP content and findings analysis from eCMID and eMISW, the latest on DP training, accreditation, and continual professional development; and,
  • A dedicated session on operational challenges -  including a look at shallow water operations, hearing from the people behind the DP desk, DP Annual Trials & Assurance, Decision Support Tools, IMCA guidance for renewable energy projects, and an industry expert open panel discussion.
