Carnival Cruise Lines has signed a contract with RTM STAR
(Simulation, Training, Assessment & Research) Center, to provide five-day simulator based training programs in Bridge Resource Management (STCW '95 compliant, U.S. Coast Guard, Bahamas and Panama approved), AZIPOD training, Advanced Shiphandling, and Command Shiphandling to Carnival Officers.
The courses have been developed, updated and customized to include the latest ship platforms and Carnival specific operating areas. The most up-to-date materials in the subject areas of team building, situational awareness, effective communications, stress management, fatigue, and cultural diversity will be included in the course text. Exercises using the full mission simulation create a "learning-by-doing" atmosphere.
These courses will allow Carnival Cruise Lines Officers to learn the keys to effective bridge resource management, familiarize them with AZIPOD technology and expose them to emergency situations from the bridge of the world's most advanced 360-degree simulator.
