Engine Team Enhancement Programme

The purpose of the course is to assess the candidate, to identify individual development areas and provide action plans for further on-board training.

Technical assessment of:
  • Knowledge of CO2 procedure and release of CO2 and work on CO2 systems.
  • Knowledge of High Voltage (HV) procedure and work on HV systems.

Human Factor Assessment of:

Assess the participants up against a predefined job characteristic Human Factor (HF) profile consisting of 6 Human Factors (Basic 6):

  • Communication (Assertiveness)
  • Leadership (Others stress coping, crisis leadership)
  • Situation Awareness
  • Decision Making
  • Teamwork
  • Performance Shaping Factors (Own stress coping, own limitations)

Perform Personal Professional Appraisal (PPA) of 2nd Engineers who are up for promotion

The course will result in a final Assessment Report and Personal Reflection Plan if they perform to the norm, and a final Assessment Report and Personal Improvement Plan (PIP) if they perform below norm. The Personal Reflections and the PIP will contain max. 3 to 5 suggestions for future personal development in identified HF and technical development areas.



Multiple choice test for below mentioned topics. Further for the CO2 system the participants will perform a self-familiarization on the CO2 system in the garage.

  • Knowledge of CO2 procedure and release of CO2 and work on CO2 systems.
  • Knowledge of High Voltage (HV) procedure and work on HV systems.

The participants will during the course work with their own Personal Reflection Document. The input to the Personal Reflection Document will come from: o Psychometric tests

  • Theoretical and technical tests
  • Simulator exercises and feed-back sessions
  • Interviews with the psychologist
  • Self-evaluation
  • Peer to peer feed-back
  • Personal feedback session
  • Personal Reflections

The participants will perform scenarios in the full mission engine room simulator in teams. Where scenarios will be conducted examples can be:

  • Collision
  • Grounding
  • Fire in engine room
  • Scavenge air fire
  • Release of CO2
  • Flooding (Internal)
  • Loss of electrical power
  • Loos of propulsion
  • Loss of steering
  • Emergency manoeuvring
  • Emergency override on main engine etc.

The results will be presented in a report as agreed between Maersk Line and Maersk Training

For CO2

The participants will demonstrate their knowledge, skills and ability according to below taxonomy performing self-study & multiple choice test.

  • After the course the Chief and 2nd Engineers will have complex ability of CO2 procedure, release of CO2 and work on CO2 systems
  • After the course the 3rd and 4th Engineers will have complex knowledge and skills of CO2 procedure, and fundamental abilities to release CO2 and work on CO2 systems

For HV

The participants will demonstrate their knowledge, skills and ability according to below taxonomy performing self-study & multiple choice test.

  • After the course the Chief and 2nd Engineers will have complex knowledge of High Voltage (HV) procedure and work on HV systems.
  • After the course the 3rd and 4th Engineers will they have intermediate knowledge of High Voltage (HV) procedure and work on HV systems

Human Factor

  • After the course the participant will have identified level of own knowledge, limitations, strengths and own skills within the Human Factor Basics 6. Furthermore the participant will have identified level of own ability to combine knowledge and skills and thereby demonstrate competence.For Chief Engineer and 2nd Engineers, focus will be on Stress coping, Situation Awareness, decision making and Crisis Leadership. For 3rd Engineers and 4th Engineers, focus will be on Assertiveness (Communication) and Self-reflection on own limitations (Performance Shaping Factor)
