CMI Orders VSTEP Simulators

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

The Caribbean Maritime Institute has ordered multiple VSTEP simulators for its new high tech simulation center at the campus in Kingston, Jamaica.

 

VSTEP will deliver all simulator solutions for the facility, including a NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge Simulator and a Class C Engine Room Simulator. CMI also ordered full classroom setups for both NAUTIS Desktop Trainers and NAUTIS Engine Room Desktop Trainers.


The new simulation center of Caribbean Maritime Institute (CMI) will serve as one of the most innovative hubs for maritime training and education in the Caribbean region, and will provide high quality training of maritime students and professionals alike in ship-handling, collision avoidance, Engine Room procedures and operations, as well as ECDIS, Radar/ARPA, AIS and other navigational aids.


After a thorough evaluation of the available maritime simulator solutions in the market, CMI selected VSTEP’s  NAUTIS maritime simulators because of their high-quality, cost-effectiveness and compliance to the latest IMO STCW regulations.  


The NAUTIS simulators for the CMI center include a NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge simulator and Class C Engine Room simulator. Included in the order are NAUTIS classroom setups for Engine Room Training which include multiple Engine Room desktop stations, and an additional classroom of NAUTIS Part Task Desktop Trainers, maximizing training accessibility and effectiveness at the facility. The facility will also include additional VSTEP RescueSim virtual incident management simulators for realistic training of maritime incidents.


Fritz Pinnock, Director of the CMI: “We are very pleased with our engagement of VSTEP because the purchase of these simulators will solidify our position as the simulator centre of the Caribbean. It will also make CMI the simulator showroom for VSTEP in the Americas.


Mark Polderman, Sales Director VSTEP: “We are proud to have the Caribbean Maritime Institute join the VSTEP family. With this investment, the CMI underlines its ambition to become the pinnacle of maritime training centers in the Caribbean, incorporating professional simulator training of the highest quality into its curriculum.
