Effective Drills Onboard Ships

Oro World 25 minutes

Under SOLAS requirements, vessels must complete drills on board at regular intervals to ensure that personnel and equipment are ready for emergencies that may develop. STCW amendments also require training to be conducted onboard to allow seafarers to renew their STCW certification without the need to complete the full course again every 5 years. Making the drills effective and useful is, therefore, a priority for vessel managers and Masters to ensure the training is relevant, no time is wasted and the seafarers receive value from the exercises.

This course introduces the regulations surrounding shipboard drills and how to comply with the requirements. It also explores how different types of drills can be used to add training value while minimising lost time to make the exercises more efficient and effective.
