Maritime resource management simulator course

Safety of life and property at sea, protection of the marine environment and efficiency of Vessel operations are the common goals shared by all Vessel owners and operators.
Course, Last updated: (International Maritime Training Centre)

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.
