BRM Training

Vessel operators can now count on the most sophisticated vessels and equipment to achieve safe navigation. However, even the best equipment and machinery and the most advanced science and technology cannot ensure success because vessels are operated by humans. We have focused massive efforts on upgrading our own technology to optimize training and thus minimize any threat to safety.

Still, technology alone is not the answer to ensuring safety at sea. BRM enables bridge personnel to make full use of their individual and collective knowledge, information and skills, as an organization called the Bridge Team - acknowledging situations, conveying information, recognizing problems, planning solutions, and putting the plans into effect.

The BRM training we offer is advanced and practical – first, study the concepts to prevent accidents, centered on organizational strength, learn BRM technology theory through lectures and brainstorming; and then undertake training using the simulator to practice BRM technology.

BRM training targets mainly marine officers, helmsmen, and others serving on the bridge, as well as captains. Our BRM training enhances individual recognition to prevent a major accident caused by a chain of tiny errors, strengthens the capacity of the Bridge Team to respond to extreme conditions, and enhances onboard organizational management. So it aims to eliminate accidents and minimize damage in accidents that do occur, protecting ships, lives, cargo, and the marine environment.

Here is an example of the training. Training programs, or course, are flexible to meet our clients' precise needs.

  • Period: 2 days
  • Place: Simulator Room, Tokyo Head Office
  • Target: Captain, deck officers and crews total 4 persons
  • Details of lecture: Human factors, theory of why accidents occur, BRM theory, practical BRM training
  • Details of training: Simulator training, about 3 programs
    Vessel for training: It will be selected the one similar to the vessel the trainee operates, from our extensive database. Sea area for training: We will ask trainees for their service route and select an appropriate one.
  • Schedule
    Day 1: 09:00-17:00
    • Orientation
    • Lecture
    • Preparation for simulation training
    Day 2: 09:00-17:00
    • Learn and get used to the simulator
    • Simulator training 1
    • Simulator training 2
    • Simulator training 3
    Meanwhile, the simulator training focuses on the following procedures:
    • Briefing: Meeting about voyage plan, allocation, job station, and pre-voyage procedures before the voyage
    • Simulator training
    • Debriefing: Self-critique after training (Trainees point out problems to each other while watching a video record of performance on the bridge.)
