When it comes to training bridge officers, simulator training is the standard, with over 86 percent of companies using simulators for this purpose, according to the Maritime Training Insights Database (MarTID) 2018 Training Practices Report.

The MarTID report found that a smaller proportion, around 60 percent total, use simulators for training engineering officers.

Investment into simulation training will only increase in years to come. Of the companies that currently make use of simulation training, the majority, over 60 percent, plan to increase the use of simulation for training officers in the next five years. None anticipate a decrease in use of simulation for officer training.
