Engine Room Resource Management (ERM) 3 days

The purpose of this course is to reduce the risk of accidents at sea. We focus on casualty prevention and human error, but also on increasing operational uptime and daily efficiency.

In a simulator we train the officers in handling dynamically escalating situations emphasising the need to apply the learning in real life situations. The participants are provided with tools to improve teamwork, leadership, communication, decision-making and resource management.
