The Sims Quizzes & Trivia

The course is designed to cut down the number of incidents and accidents plus the ships downtime by addressing and highlighting the basic good practices, potential human errors as well as watch keeping arrangements and procedures. The course provides the understanding and training of the Bridge Team management concept. The course provides the participant with means of effective tools which can be used in improving the skill and performance of the bridge team. Human error is the most common cause of ships grounding, and collision and has been estimated the primary cause and in 80% to 85% of such cases. The International Maritime Organization recommends that the shipping companies take the initiative in implementing the Bridge Team Managemen
