Integrated bridge training

In-house or on-board

We provide Integrated Bridge System (IBS) training consisting of the following modules:

  • Infrastructure
  • Radar
  • Autopilot
  • Dynamic Positioning
  • Navigation sensors

Training can be tailored upon customer’s request and the specific configuration of its Integrated Bridge System on-board.

Remote training

Electronic chart display

In addition to training at our own training facilities in Rotterdam and Schiedam, we also provide remote training. Training via digital platforms reduces travel, costs, time and the climate footprint. This service is delivered through online training tools with the use of a virtual ship environment.

Upon your request we can even make a complete virtual copy of your vessel to simulate the situation on board and create a completely tailor-made training.

The digital training environment enables the crew to make optimal use of their own systems, assisted live by a qualified instructor.
