Bridge Procedures Course
This advanced course on bridge procedures is for companies who wish to use their own fleet procedures to develop their bridge teams beyond the current requirements. We will put teams under controlled pressure ensuring that they have to revert to using the basics for navigation and working as an effective team. The course is tailored to suit individual company requirements for the specific team they wish to train, drawing from a modular list of simulator and/or lecture subjects.
To cement already established bridge procedures within bridge team roles and introduce the use of ECDIS within them if required. Company procedures can be supplied to tailor course content.
