H O M E >> Maritime training >> What is Maritime training?
 
 
We have been conducting various types of shiphandling training through the use of a large full-mission shiphandling simulator that we have developed based on our proprietary know-how.

The use of a simulator-that very accurately reproduces the characteristics of a real vessel-enables us to offer repetitive training in shiphandling for port entry/departure, in emergency shiphandling, such as might be required in the event of engine failure, or in maneuvering under strong winds or tidal streams, but under safe, although realistic conditions. We also offer maritime training custom-tailored to the specific needs of our customers.
 
 
We have been providing the following shiphandling simulator training for masters, deck officers and pilots:

Management training to most effectively utilize human and material resources, as well as information available on the bridge of a vessel, based on the assumption that they are all resources involved in safe navigation. This training is conducted by a team of people who are each assigned roles, such as master, deck officer, and helmsman.
In the airline industry, pilots are required to undergo this type of CRM (cockpit resource management) training once a year. In the marine industry also, some companies based outside Japan provide compulsory BRM training for officers before they board vessels.
 
     
 
Intended trainees
Masters and deck officers of foreign-going and coastal vessels (in the case of coastal vessels, engineering officers are also included)
Duration
3 days
Contents of training
・Instruction regarding the concept of BRM
・Various topics regarding BRM

What is the PEC system?
The PEC (pilot exemption certificate) system is one which allows masters-who have a certain level of experience in navigation in a compulsory pilotage area-to be exempt from the obligatory use of pilotage services.

Amendments to the Pilotage Law in 2005 have made it possible to satisfy part of the requirements for navigation experience by undergoing a shiphandling simulator training course. However, those who wish to do so must undergo such training at a facility approved by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
We are the first such training facility to be approved.
