  • Shi Simulator and Bridge Teamwork (SSBT)         Show Description


    • This course is practical and theoretical and consists of a series of exercises performed on a ship-handling simulator. Classroom lectures, to provide the necessary theoretical background for the exercises, are included. Particular items dealt with in these lectures are illustrated either by including them as part of an exercise or by a separate simulator demonstration. Bridge teamwork is dealt with either lecture and/or demonstration during simulation exercises.

      Exercises are controlled by an instructor and, initially, allow the trainees to become familiar with the equipment, the controls and the instrumentation provided by the simulator.

      The exercises increase in complexity as the course progresses and as trainees become familiar with the maneuvering characteristics of the ship model and its response to the engine and helm in various conditions. The final exercises deal with the planning and execution of a coastal passage from port to port and will make use of the knowledge and skills and learned in all of the previous exercises. Equipment failure or malfunction will be introduced during the latest exercises to afford trainees practice in taking emergency preventive action and to practice on bridge teamwork in critical situations.

      During exercises, trainees are expected to make use of effective bridge procedures, to comply with International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (COLREG 1972) and to observe the basic principles of keeping a navigational watch, as set out in regulation VIII/2, section A-VIII/2 and B–VIII/2 of the STCW 95 Convention and Code. They will assume the different roles of the bridge watchkeeping team, the roles being rotated to allow each trainee an opportunity to act as master for some of the exercises.

      Each exercise will be preceded by a session for briefing and planning and be followed by a debriefing.

The course emphasizes both the application and learning of ECDIS in a variety of underway contexts.

      The course is designed to meet the STCW requirements in the use of ECDIS, as revised by the 2010 Manila Amendments, specifically as these apply to Tables A-II/1, A-II/2 and A-II/3, and also to revised guidelines pertaining to training and assessment in the operational use of ECDIS in Table B-I (paragraphs 36 through 66), assessment in navigational watchkeeping, and evaluation of competence, both in Table B-II.

      It should be understood that this is a generic course which requires a structured and complementary on-board ship specific ECDIS familiarization for each shipboard ECDIS system on which the navigating officer serves.
