Our range of training courses covers basic training of shipping company employees who have never worked on a vessel, all the way to experienced seafarers doing complex simulator driven scenarios for anchor handling and bridge resource management.
Maersk Training covers technical training in most areas of the maritime industry and we are able to and have experience with simulating a wide array of scenarios:
o Supply vessels and anchor handling
o Container vessels
o Tanker vessels
o Bulk carries
o Specific port manoeuvres
o Tug boat operations
o LNG carries
o Rig moves
o Advanced towing operations
Offshore supply requires special skills
Sailing offshore supply vessels requires diverse skills which are often very specific for each operation. We develop skills, increase knowledge and infuse a culture of correct behaviour.
Maersk and tankers have been closely associated for many decades. We have vast experience and expertise in training for liquid cargo handling, including the use of Liquid Cargo Handling Simulators (LCHS) in several of our training centres.
We provide container shipping crews with courses ranging from onboard shipboard management when loading in port, to dealing in mid-voyage with the thermodynamics in a faulty reefer with expensive cargo.
The training programme covers more than 50 different courses and our instructors are maritime professionals with a proven maritime track record. We employ maritime officers as instructors because we believe that the learning effect is many times higher if a captain is trained by another captain that knows how theories work in the real life. All our instructors are regularly circulated back to work in maritime operations for some years before returning in order to maintain their practical skills and to follow the development in their profession.
Our centres are equipped with advanced simulators that allow us to replicate the real world in a controlled environment allowing the course participants to train their skills and build strong technical competences. We aim higher by challenging the course participants in their zone of proximal development. We not only measure the course participant’s knowledge improvement during the course, but are also able to support the customers with tools to measure and maintain the training acquired.
