Silversea and Clipper Sign Contracts with RTM STAR Center

August 18, 1999

Silversea Cruises Ltd., Fort Lauderdale, and Clipper Cruise Line, St. Louis, have signed training and licensing contracts with RTM STAR Center. STAR Center is a maritime simulation, training, assessment and research facility headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, and is ISO 9001 Certified. Silversea Cruises, an ultra luxury, all-suite cruise line that travels worldwide, will receive training in Bridge Team Management and Elementary First Aid. As part of its commitment to continuing education, Silversea's deck officers will receive extensive practice on STAR Center's 360 degree full mission simulation bridge during the five-day USCG-approved Bridge Team Management course. They will rehearse the skills needed to recognize and break potential error chains that can lead to groundings, collisions and environmental damage. In addition, they will receive training and certification in Elementary First Aid, part of the STCW Basic Safety Training Program that meets American Red Cross standards. Clipper Cruise Line, a small vessel, "soft adventure" alternative to conventional cruising, has licensed STAR Center's five-day, USCG-approved, Basic Safety Training Program. The course meets STCW requirements and consists of four modules: Personal Safety and Social Responsibility, Elementary First Aid and CPR, Personal Survival Techniques, and Fire Fighting and Fire Prevention.
