Bridge and Engine room resource management course

“Human Error” has been the primary reason for maritime accidents. We, at Girik Maritime, are aware of such implications and appreciate the need for Engine Room Resource Management training, in order to improve safety and efficiency on board. It is imperative to enhance the social interaction between team members, improve their situational awareness and boost their decision making skills. This is all the more crucial in a high fidelity, complex and simulated working environment.

In May 2005, the IMO Maritime Safety Committee approved STCW.6/Circ.7 on Amendments to part B of the STCW Code, to provide guidance on engine-room resource management. The learning objectives of the engine room resource management course delivered at Girik Maritime cover all of the requirements of STCW amendments. The course syllabus/material is relevant, current and appropriate and reflects industry best practice.
