Advanced Ship Handling (Manned Models)

About this course

This advanced course is suitable for more experienced pilots, captains and senior deck officers who wish to develop their skills and knowledge. It builds on the basics of the standard Ship Handling (Manned Models) course to involve more complex and intricate ship handling, with particular reference to situations they encounter in their sphere of operations.

The programme can be customised to meet the requirements and aspirations of the individuals attending, addressing more advanced issues such as the use of tugs. Superyacht officers may also wish to further their skills with this training.
