Simulators Track our Changing Relationship with Technology

Simulation-based training has its whole-of-ship/whole-of-team scenarios, but zooming in, the industry is now working on more specific targets.We have a close relationship with technology, evidenced by, for example, the phones we are estimated to unlock around 50-80 times a day. It has changed us. Half the people surveyed in a 2022 King’s College London study said that they feel like their attention span is shorter than it used to be. They are wrong, though, if they think that the average attention span of adults today is just eight seconds, one second less than goldfish. The science behind these

KOTUG Training, AMC Search ink Partnership

KOTUG Training & Consultancy, the training and consultancy division of KOTUG, and AMC Search, the training and consultancy division of the Australian Maritime College (AMC) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish a long-term strategic partnership. The MoU encompasses exclusive training of (tug) masters, ships’ crews and pilots in Australia by certified KOTUG trainers at AMC’s training facilities in Tasmania.

demanded by the IGF Code.“Having worked with Wärtsilä Voyage for some 25 years, we know and trust their technology completely. We were the first private ship management company to install Wärtsilä’s ship handling simulators, and we are again pioneering comprehensive simulation training in LNG bunkering and cargo handling operations. We consider this to be an extremely important step in ensuring the safe and efficient running of our LNG-fuelled vessels,” said Capt. Pradeep Chawla, Managing Director of QHSE and Training, Anglo-Eastern.“Crew training has to

. It is difficult to self-study with many of the more technical courses and the hands-on portions will always require a “bricks and mortar” facility.Which technologies do you view as most promising to deliver maritime training more effectively and efficiently?Video conferencing and virtual simulations will play a larger role. Efficient yet safe classrooms are a must. The level of technology and infrastructure to effectively deliver and measure the students’ knowledge, understanding, and competence levels will continue to rise. The blended approach will allow students to receive the classroom

and applied learning for deck license students in their sophomore and junior year, with a total of 20 workstations, 10 in each of the lab’s two floors. Each station mimics the bridge of a ship, allowing students to work individually or as a team of two at each station. Instructors control simulation exercises, which promotes an interactive class experience and students gain exposure to the electronic navigation equipment in a vessel’s bridge. Students are also taught the importance of promoting safety through communication by being introduced to interacting with other vessels. The lab

, along with computer technology, sonar and radar technology. The Navigation and Maneuvering Simulator - SIMNAV - was developed by ICN in 2011 as an aid to the teaching for the preparatory classes for the PILOT CADET exam. The first class occurred in December of the same year.“As the first bridge simulation system developed entirely in Brazil, SIMNAV is also a technological milestone in the field of maritime training, presenting unique algorithms and system architecture. It offers an ideal environment to familiarize mariners with bridge procedures. The complete bridge station can receive groups of
