Ship Simulators

A ship simulator is an advanced training device; an electronic or mechanical system used to expose vessel operators and crew members to typical shipboard conditions and systems. Simulation training is not a substitute for the experience of training on an actual vessel, but is used as a preliminary method to thoroughly familiarize students with equipment, procedures, and processes. Simulation also is useful for review and for demonstrating updates and modifications to existing craft.
