Ship Automation


The ship automation course is given at our training facility in Rotterdam and Schiedam, remote or on board. We explain the platform concept, and show which signals are generated by the ship and how they must be handled and monitored. We offer separate training for operators and maintainers. The courses stand for a unique combination of theory and practice.

Remote and on board training

In addition to training at our own training facilities in Rotterdam and Schiedam, we also provide remote training. Training via digital platforms reduces travel, costs, time and the climate footprint. This service is delivered through online training tools with the use of a virtual ship environment. Upon your request we can even make a complete virtual copy of your vessel to simulate the situation on board and create a completely tailor-made training. The digital training environment enables the crew to make optimal use of their own systems, assisted live by a qualified instructor.

Upon customer’s request we are also able to train your crew on board on your own system to maximize the ship’s performance. The ship automation training program combines theory and practice in your fully operational system.

We offer the following courses in ship automation:

  • Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS) for operators: Complete course about working the IPMS

  • Integrated Platform Monitoring System (IPMS) for maintainers: Daily and regular (preventive) IPMS maintenance and more specialized maintenance issues related to the system (trouble shooting, corrective maintenance)

  • Propulsion Control System (PCS): Understanding the purpose and functioning of the PCS. Managing the propulsion system: what is needed to carry out the navigational requirements

  • Power Management System (PMS): Understanding the purpose and functioning of PMS. Practical experience in operating Power Management Systems on board ships.
