Starlight Marine’s New Training Program

harleymarine.jpg

Starlight Marine Services has implemented a successful training program in the Tractor Tug Simulator at the California Maritime Academy. Since January, California Maritime Academy and Starlight Marine Services have joined forces and worked hard to develop a Tractor Tug Simulator Program using their newly constructed Simulator Center. It has been the goal of Starlight Marine Services to develop a Simulation Program that would encompass Crisis Management, Bridge Resource Management and Emergency Tug Escort Maneuvering to allow them to evaluate and train their Captains in real time scenarios just as they might encounter on the job and in time of extremis. With a focus on San Francisco Bay areas of operation, along with the ability to integrate the Tug Wheelhouse Simulator with the Ship’s Bridge Simulator, there is no question that the goal of developing a realistic and challenging operating environment has been achieved. At this point, a total of 8 Starlight Captains have completed the program during two sessions at California Maritime Academy. During each session, an Operations Team Meeting begins the scenario, which is then followed by a half hour of orientation time for the Captains with the Tug Simulator itself. Once the Captains are comfortable with their settings and the simulator operator is ready to go, the Captains are briefed on the first scenario. One Captain enters the Simulator at a time and completes the scenario
