With over 80 orders for its K-Master aft- and forward-bridge workstation, Kongsberg Maritime introduce specialized training course for offshore operators.

The new course is designed to enable offshore support vessel crew to enhance operational safety and efficiency using this sophisticated control solution.

K-Master is a complete and independent work station, designed to meet strict aft and forward bridge ergonomic considerations regarding the arrangement of working places, instrumentation and the operability of the equipment itself. K-Master sets a new standard in the integration of navigation, control and manoeuvring functions of ships bridges. It provides unique access to all major control systems within easy reach of the seated operator and ensures complete situational awareness.

The aim of the new course is to teach operators how to use the two touch control panels (TCP) that are integrated with the K-Master chair. From these screens, the operator has access to a wide variety of information and functionality, for DP manoeuvring and operation of a number of main vessel sub-systems. A prerequisite for operating K-Master and taking part in the training course is having basic Dynamic Positioning operation knowledge in addition to familiarity with Kongsberg Maritime's K-Chief automation system.

Kongsberg Maritime held the K-Master training pilot course at its training centre in its headquarters in Kongsberg, Norway. With owners and yards worldwide accepting the K-Master solution as a next generation control technology for innovative vessels, Kongsberg Maritime has taken the 'training in a box' approach, first pioneered on courses for the K-Chief automation system, for this new course.

Kongsberg say that it training for K-Master lends itself to the portable training course approach, as they are able to mimic its touch screen control system using tablet computers, which are small and very easy to transport.
