The course provides the minimum training requirements for deck officers and masters on ships of 500 GT or more.
It aims to give the principles of Radar and ARPA use as an anti-collision means even in congested areas and in traffic separation zones, as well as to organize bridge team work and to perform search and rescue operations.
All the above operations are supported by the use of a 9 workstation shiphandling simulator, introducing to the use of ARPA, ECDIS, GMDSS, GPS, VHF, VTS, SART, EPIRB equipment, etc.. The simulator, equipped with six own vessels and tracking up to 50 targets, reproduces real navigation: the possibility to create sea, wind, fog, rain effects and the variation of light effect based on hour, day, month and latitude lend a highly realistic environment to the simulation, showing also nightfall and sunrise effects and including night navigation.


The relevant IMO STCW certificate, internationally recognized, is issued after successful completion of final exams.


The course is scheduled year-round, except in the month of August.
