UTILISING INDUSTRY-LEADING SIMULATORS
Bridge Resource Management
The course provides participants with the knowledge, skills and understanding of leadership and teamwork at the management level aboard a ship. We expand on standard Bridge Resource Management (BRM) principles with company-bespoke components, further developing navigational officers’ competence.
The training is based on the MNTB’s HELM (Human Element Leadership and Management) and the requirements of Section A-II/1 and A-II/2 of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended (including the 2010 Manila Amendments).
safely, efficiently and effectively
The course provides knowledge, understanding, and proficiency in leading and managing available bridge resources safely, efficiently and effectively in response to abnormal or emergency situations.
The training is based on the requirements of Section A-II/1 and A-II/2 of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended (including the 2010 Manila Amendments).
CROSS-DEPARTMENTAL TRAINING / CROSS-FUNCTIONAL TRAINING
Vessel Resource Management
The course provides participants with the knowledge, skills and understanding of effective coordination and resource management principles across different shipboard departments: deck, engine and hotel (in case of cruise vessels). It merges individual theoretical and practical sessions for each department as well as integrated ones, with special regard to crisis situations. The course utilises linked-up simulators to replicate multiple immersive emergency scenarios, ensuring a better understanding of each department’s priorities and needs, while also improving overall performance and emergency management.
applying the Collision Regulations correctly, ensuring safe navigation of the vessel
Advanced COLREGS Course
During the advanced COLREGs course, we work together to build on and expand existing knowledge, practicing the Rules to fully comprehend and employ them. The overall learning outcome is a thorough understanding and proficiency in not only interpreting, but also applying the Collision Regulations correctly, ensuring safe navigation of the vessel.
The course includes three days of instruction, discussion and practice, implementing the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, including the analysis and replication of case studies with the aid of simulators.
The course provides training to masters, chief mates and officers in charge of navigational watch to operate ships in polar waters and address additional provisions as required by the Polar Code, taking into account climatic conditions and meeting appropriate standards of maritime safety and pollution prevention.
This course meets the requirements of STCW A-V/4.1 and IMO Model course 7.11, with accreditation from ILT (Dutch Maritime Inspectorate) and BMA (Bahamas Maritime Authority), allowing issuance of the COP.
This advanced training can also be combined with the basic Polar Code course.
This course provides training to masters, chief mates in management level to manage ships in Polar waters and to address those additional provisions as required by the Polar Code. In addition, accomplished by 2 months of seagoing service in polar waters or equivalent.
The course meets the provisions of the STCW A-V/4.2 and IMO Model course IMO 7.12.
It is accredited by the ILT (Dutch Maritime Inspectorate) and Bahamas and can lead to the issuance of the COP.
This can be combined with the Basic Polar course.
STS – Mooring Masters
The course is designed for mooring masters, pilots or captains representing a company that executes ship-to-ship operations.
Ship-to-ship operations are mainly used for cargo transfer between two ships. This can take place out on the open sea, in ports or at anchorages. The manoeuvres require bringing the ships safely alongside of each other. This necessitates specialised expertise from the navigator. Oftentimes, these navigators are mooring masters, pilots or captains.
This course is based on the requirements of Section A-II/2 of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended (including the 2010 Manila Amendments).
Intact & Damage
Assessments provide companies with valuable insight into the expertise of their bridge officers. They are also a useful tool to facilitate promotion or seek possible new hires.
The focus of a navigational assessment is equipment usage, passage planning, Collision Regulations, human elements, communication and protocols or emergencies.
Real-life and imaginary scenarios are available for all vessel types. Duration is normally between one and three days (depending on the number of participants).
The focus of a ship-handling assessment is not only the appropriate use of all types of propulsion, but also the continuous safety of the vessel as well as various human elements (such as decision-making and situational awareness).
Sharing a mental model of the manoeuvres is also important. Ship-handling assessments are mostly designed for captains/staff captains or senior officers. Duration is normally between one and three days (depending on the number of participants).
