NEWCASTLE, UK – Maersk Training has launched a new program aimed at minimizing human-error incidents in marine environments. The course is based on the Merchant Navy Training Board’s criteria.
The five-day program uses a range of exercises designed around shipboard drills, bridge and engine room simulations, and maritime experiential team exercises. It will enable masters and chief engineers, chief mates, and second engineers to apply regulations, policy and procedures, and to acquire certification under Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) regulations. The course will also benefit operational personnel in shore-based roles.
Additionally, beginning in December, Maersk Training in Newcastle will provide another course, Managing Safely for Offshore Renewables.
