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.

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...

The training pack consists of twenty-three video files providing visualized instructions on getting electronic nautical publications from the gateway DVD and from the internet, using the electronic NP screen and viewing subject publications electronically, generating certificate and reports, ordering products and registration via email and through the internet, passage planning.

It also covers adding scheduling to a plan, calculating under-keel clearance, creating a passage plan, editing legs and waypoints, and using tidal information, managing ARCS data and updating electronic charts using internet and email, viewing products and updating them, and finally updating the catalogue and permits.

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.

This is another film of those forming the Vessel Resource Management series. This one is devoted to the voyage plan of the ship and particularly appraisal and planning activities.

This film is covering the most important aspects of voyage planning and shows what shall be done in order to prepare a correct voyage plan.

Having a duly prepared plan is considered very important for the safe and efficient operation of any vessel that is why this matter shall be pain very close and serious attention. The content of the video is continued within the next one which is dealing with the executing, monitoring and chart corrections.

This is one of the films making the Vessel Resource Management series. It shall be treated as an excellent and very informative update to the Bridge Procedures & Bridge Resource Management series released by the same training provider earlier and proven very effective; subject series include videos dealing with the accident prevention, navigation charts and associated publications, bridge watchkeeping, working with VTS, emergency procedures and voyage planning - all of them are readily available for the familiarization here.

This particular training was prepared to demonstrate how the ship Master and officers should obtain the best assistance from the Pilots and what shall be done by them to ensure due compliance with the obligations mandated by the STCW Convention. It is imperative that the pilots are treated with appropriate respect and professionalism.

The video underlines the importance of having proper and thorough exchange of information and good communication between ship Master and Pilot - this is critically important for the safe operations. Note that we also have two videos of the same series, devoted to the voyage plan, the first film is dealing with the appraisal and planning while the second one addresses its executing, monitoring and correction of charts...

One more film continuing the topic of the voyage plan started within the previous video which dealt with the appraisal and planning matters. The present training video is covering the executing and monitoring of the voyage plan. As it was explained in the content of the first part of the training, duly prepared voyage plan is considered critically important for the safe operation of any ship.

However, having even the best voyage plan is not enough - all efforts shall be made by the crew members of the vessel to make sure that the plan is properly executed and monitored. In addition to the above, this video covers the correction of the charts which is sometimes required. As it was the case with the other films of the Vessel Resource Management series, this one is providing both trainees and professionals with the valuable information.

Being duly familiarized with all aspects of preparing and executing of the voyage plan will definitely contribute in the effectiveness and safety of the voyage and all operations on board their vessel and this is the main reason why all parts of the training series including those making Bridge Resource Management series (navigation charts and associated publications - emergency procedures - working with VTS - voyage planning - bridge watchkeeping - accident prevention) are recommended.

The present video training programme is taking a remarkably detailed look at the SIRE Programme. SIRE is standing for the Ship Inspection Report. The content of the video starts with the brief discussion of the origins of this safety programme, considering the role of the persons using the reports and people performing the inspections.

The trainees will first look at the vessels particulars and vessel inspection questionnaires and then the focus will switch to the examination of the inspection process itself starting with what exactly shipboard personnel could do and should do when preparing for the inspection.

The author of the video has detailed every single aspect of the areas that are commonly checked by the inspectors, discussing what the inspectors would most probably want to see and check in the ship's documentation and providing numerous practical tips on what personnel should expect and be prepared to during a SIRE inspection.

He is also dealing with the obligation of the SIRE inspector to record all exceptions and what actions are to be taken by the personnel should they disagree with the findings. At the end, the author discusses the impact that the SIRE safety initiative has on the tanker fleet of today's world. The training is primarily aimed at the officers on the oil tankers.
