L-3 MPRI’s Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator Accredited for Use in the Delivery of Tanker Officer Training Standards Training Courses and Assessment Exercises for the Italian Maritime Academy Philippines

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 08, 2011 – L-3 MPRI, a global provider of integrated training solutions, which includes simulation-based training systems, services and turnkey training facilities, today announced that its Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator (LCHS) installed at the Italian Maritime Academy Philippines (IMAP) has been accredited by the Registro Italiano Navale (RINA) for use in the delivery of the Tanker Officer Training Standards (TOTS) training and assessment programs provided by the Academy. IMAP provides training to Filipino seafarers, and the simulator will be used to ensure that all personnel are trained to the highest levels.

The models and course material available with the simulator are fully compatible with TOTS, simplifying the accreditation process. To assist with the verification of personnel against the TOTS requirements, IMAP and L-3 MPRI will collaborate to develop the detailed training and assessment criteria that will allow the progress and knowledge of each student to be recorded and verified using the L-3 MPRI WISE Assessment System. L-3’s WISE Assessment and WISE Virtual Instructor Systems provide the tools to ensure trainer assessments are fair, delivered in a consistent way and include the detailed records needed to support IMAP’s requirements.

“The accreditation by RINA confirms that our LCHS system is fully capable of providing a platform for training and assessment courses that meets all the current international and industry standards,” said Dennis Corrigan, senior vice president and general manager of L-3 MPRI’s Training Systems Group. “The Italian Maritime Academy Philippines is one of the first institutions to receive this accreditation, and we are very pleased to continue providing fully trained personnel for its clients.”
