Pure car / truck carrier orientation course
The special construction and manoeuvring characteristics of these ships make their handling rather difficult and complicated especially while berthing and unberthing.
- The course is designed to greatly enhance operational safety on board Car/Truck Carriers. While it helps a first time joiner to acquire the knowledge necessary for safe and efficient operation of the vessel, it fills the existing gaps in the knowledge of a person who has some sailing experience on such ships. The course also fosters learning through sharing of experiences amongst participants.
