The Maritime TC is the only Russian training centre internationally accredited for DP operator training. It is also one of the few in the world having actual DP equipment from several leading manufacturers. To meet growing demand from industry, the Maritime Training Centre of Admiral Makarov SUMIS acquired in 2016 new Kongsberg (K-POS) simulator – C Class. The simulator is intended for training and assessment of crew members of ships with DP Systems. Training with this type of equipment allows seafarers to learn operational specifics before leaving shore and practice skills in operation of Kongsberg simulator and its maintenance.
Practical training is conducted with use of navigation simulators (NAVIS NavDP 400 – B Class, and KONGSBERG (K-Pos) – C Class) as well as in traditional manner using actual equipment – NAVIS stands. Here NAVIS maintenance engineers provide training on diagnostic troubleshooting.
The courses are authorised by NAVIS, manufacturer of maneuvering control systems.
