Ship Handling (Manned Models)

About this course

 This course is aimed at captains and senior deck officers to develop their existing skills and understand the behaviour and handling of large vessels with special emphasis on slow speed control.

An intensive period of exercises in the manned ship models is supported by a programme of lectures and instruction at our ship handling centre. Special situations encountered within the sphere of operations of individual students can be incorporated into the programme.

Courses are scheduled weekly between March and November. Please contact the Admissions and Recruitment Team for dates and availability.
