ENTE RADAR - ITALIAN SHIPPING ACADEMY has been authorized to deliver this course by the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport - Italian Coast Guard Headquarters - decrees 64/2016 and 274/2016


The course is required for all mariners aiming to obtain the IMO certification of:

The course can be attended by all mariners who have successfully completed the RADAR NAVIGATION AND PLOTTING COURSE (operational level)


The course lasts 28 hours. Attendance is mandatory.


This course aims to give knowledge and training for an appropriate ARPA use as an anti-collision means even in congested areas, in traffic separation zones, etc., through the use of an 18 workstation simulator equipped with six own vessels and with several kinds of ARPA indicators, tracking up to 50 targets, in high relative speed scenarios.
Whenever possible, exercices are performed with the help of the ship handling simulation equipment, thus reproducing real sea navigation.

Special emphasis is given to A.I.S. use, highlighting qualities, flaws and possible future applications in navigation safety.

During the course, a specific seminar is dedicated to SMCP use (Standard Marine Communications and Phrases), as adopted by IMO on 29/11/2001 - Res. A.918(22).
