Course description: 

This course provides training in general ship-handling for masters and deck officers.  It is also for those deck officers with limited "hands-on" ship manoeuvring and handling experience prior to taking up their first command or converting to vessels with sophisticated or unusual manoeuvring systems. Although more complex types will be referred to, the training concentrates on conventional single and twin screw vessels.

The course comprises training in pivot point variations, propulsion effects, types, effects and limitations of rudders and thrusters, operation of the helm, propulsion and thrusters, effects of wind and current and use of tugs.
