Pilots Emergency Procedures

About this course

This specialised two-and-a-half-day course for senior mariners and pilots is designed to enable the ship handler to respond safely to various emergency and developing situations. This will be achieved through a concentrated period of practical exercises in the manned ship models, supported by a series of lectures.

It enables participants to develop their skills and understanding of the principles and practices of ship handling with particular emphasis on emergency procedures and manoeuvres, including steering, engine and bow thruster failures, emergency stopping in confined waters, and emergency manoeuvring with anchors.

The course can be tailored to suit individual delegates and may also include interaction scenarios and escort towage principles using radio controlled tugs if required.
