Bridge operation refresher training

DSNM Ltd logoDesigned in collaboration with our partners, DSNM, this bespoke training enables Masters and senior officers to refresh theory and practical elements of bridge operation, as well as update knowledge of the latest regulations and changes.

Following feedback from captains and crews, the one-day programme has been designed to be flexible, and enables Masters and senior officers to identify any weaker areas in knowledge, as well as provide supportive and engaging training for all levels of bridge crew. The programme links theory and practical elements to the real-world environment of the day-to-day bridge, while improving the crew's skills and promoting maritime best practice.

Following an initial assessment of your yacht and crew requirements - which also allows captains and senior crew to highlight specific needs or objectives they would like to achieve - our expert trainers will travel direct to your yacht (anywhere in the world) to carry out a comprehensive two-part bridge training programme. Training will normally cover:

  • Discovery and introduction - specific requirements from the Captain, informal Q&A session with crew, best practice knowledge sharing sessions
  • Bridge walk-around and informal audit with feedback, including ECDIS, paper charts, radar, GMDSS, compasses, VDR
  • Voyage planning
  • Drill execution
  • Table top radar exercise
  • Navigation masterclass with test
  • Review and close

After training has been completed, and following a written and oral assessment, we will provide feedback and a future action summary. Our team will also be on hand after the training for support and advice.
