ECDIS VOYAGE PLANNING

There are four main learning objectives declared by the developers of this training module. First of all, the trainees will understand what the voyage planning is and why we should have it at all. Then, they will get to know everything about the responsibilities of the company in connection with providing their people with appropriate instructions and procedures.

In addition to that, all important factors that shall be considered when making a decision on the appropriate route have been covered. Finally, this module will tell them about the fundamental principles of the voyage planning and shed some light on execution of the plan both with and without the ECDIS system available.

The main purpose of the voyage planning is to provide adequate preparation for the intended voyage with the due attention paid by the bridge team to the voyage and also to make sure that the vessel will be navigated in a safe manner. A proper voyage plan will provide a good coverage of the pilotage, coastal and ocean waters. Of course, the navigators shall be appropriately briefed with regard to the intended navigation. Should the voyage plan have to be amended, the navigators shall be made of these changes.

ECDIS VIDEO GUIDES — KONGSBERG K—BRIDGE

This collection of training videos will provide users with all necessary instructions related to the Kongsberg K-Bridge system. The arrangement of the content is nearly similar to the one of the pack dealing with the JRC system. The first of the video lessons is introductory and tells you how to find your UPN, standing for the User Permit Number. The second and third lessons cover deleting of the ENC data and permits.

The other five lessons making the pack are dealing with the same subjects as in the JRC training, i.e. installing the public key for the S-63 1.1, ENC permits, AVCS base and update CD media, and finally the DVD media. Needless to say that this training package will be of great practical interest and use for all crew members immediately involved in the installation and use of the system.

However, taking into account the information it provides and clarity and conciseness of the explanations and descriptions provided in these videos, we would say that it will be good for any navigator to acquaint himself or herself with the content. Even if you have some other ECDIS system installed on your ship, understanding of the fundamental concept and different systems will give them a good advantage.

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION ON BOARD SHIP

The short video training film devoted to the effectiveness of the communication. The authors want to demonstrate how important it is to establish and subsequently maintain a proper communication procedures on absolutely all levels if you want to operate your ship safely and efficiently. The communication is commonly referred to as a transfer of messages and signals between persons willing to create an understanding or a particular meaning, or a certain type of reaction.

Should there be no reaction received, then we are most probably talking about the one-way type of communication. Three major communication types include verbal, written and non-verbal communication meaning signals and signs. One can never overestimate the importance of having a good communication for the safety of navigation and ship handling at all times. A lack of communication is one of the reasons leading to bad consequences.

According to the statistical data collected in the past decades, from seventy to eighty per cents of all accidents and incidents occurring at sea are originating from some sort of communication problem. That is why it is very important for all crew members to work out good and effective communication procedures.

BOATING AT NIGHT

This instructional video was developed by John Owens, Chief Editor of the Boating Magazine. Running a boat at night time is often a wonderful experience; however sometimes it can be really dangerous. In this video the trainees will be shown some of the skills which they will definitely need not only to make their boating at night safe but also making it with a lot of fun. We will start with the planning.

The proper planning of your boating is one of the most important measures to take to provide safety. Obviously, when planning your boating route you shall try and avoid shipping lanes. Such areas are even most hazardous for the boaters at night due to lower visibility. Make sure that you are able to observe all marks since failure to do so will create additional problems and eventually result in serious consequences...

In short, the content of this training video shall be checked by all boaters regardless of their skills, theoretical knowledge and practical experience since there can never bee too much of safety. Thanks to the way the author explains the things, the instructions provided in this video will be easy to follow even to the people with no experience, i.e. newcomers to the world of boating.

BULK CARRIERS — HANDLE WITH CARE (VIDEO)

The present training video may be used as an excellent supplement to the IACS guidance on this topic. The content was developed to summarize the most important and common problems in loading/discharging high density and heavy cargoes. The authors have also considered technical factors from the ship safety and design limitation viewpoints. As the worldwide demand for the raw materials grows, faster turnaround become common.

More than ever, seafarers working aboard bulk carriers need to rely on their training and professionalism in order to deal with the problems associated with the transportation of materials in bulk. Before any crew member starts working on a vessel, they undergo a familiarization program to become aware of the working practices and safety procedures. Safety, however, does not stop there.

The huge size of the bulk carrier gives impression of the great strength but that strength can get significantly weakened by unseen forces powerful enough to endanger the ship and its crew. So safety aboard a bulk carrier also depends on understanding of the vessel itself and the effect these forces have on the ship's structure. And, if the vessel is handled with care, the vessel will care for its crew...

GOOD BUNKERING PRACTICE (VIDEO)

This training video released by Videotel and accompanied with the booklet provides required training on the bunkering. The bunkering operations are always very intense and challenging for all people onboard. It is often conducted when the crew members and supporting engineering personnel are all heavily pressed for both shortage in manpower and time available for the operation.

That is why it is critically important to ensure that they receive required training and are proficient in preparation for bunkering of the vessel, sampling and measurements conducted in the course of the bunkering process, bunkering itself and operations following the bunkering plus contingency planning.

The content of this training program has been significantly updated and improved. It is intended to be watched and read by all crew members and is now duly reflecting the changes in the bunkering market that took place over the last decade, including newly introduced sampling technologies and latest requirements of sixth annex to the MARPOL convention. The program is compliant with the relevant international legislation, and is highly recommended not only to the crew members but also to the future mariners.
