Maritime resource management simulator course
Against this backdrop, the avoidance of “Human Error” becomes a critical success factor.
This course builds upon the basic concepts of human resource management, and provides an in-depth understanding of the “Human Factors” which can lead to human errors. Presentations, discussions, case studies, and simulation exercises are carried out on integrated Bridge and Engine-room Simulators to reinforce learning and accelerate behavioural changes required for developing a “safety culture”. An elaborate assessment process ensures that participants achieve a thorough understanding of the subject matter.
The MRM-SIM Course is custom-designed by the Ship Modeling and Simulation Centre (SMSC) , Trondheim, for Wilhelmsen Ship Management, with IMTC as a partner in Course delivery and development.
The Course fulfils the training requirements for competencies stated in STCW 2010 (Manila amendments) as follows :
