  What's new  

The Atlantic Pilotage Authority (APA) is calling upon the Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre (MSRC) for the continuous proficiency of their pilots. In 2011, 22 pilots from the APA will train at MSRC on various programs.
Captain Brian Stanley, pilot of the Newfoundland region, who attended several courses at MSRC, forwarded his comments:

Having completed the AZIPOD simulation training , the Radar Errors course and just recently the ECDIS training at the MSRC I can honestly say that this training facility is second to none in this field.  The instruction is tailored for the professional mariner and in many cases deals directly with circumstances and situations that pilots and masters find themselves faced with on a daily basis

Thus the training is very relevant and up to date in our ever changing environment which is itself an achievement.  Well written course material, very competent instructors and a first rate simulator combine to allow any mariner regardless of background or experience to walk away having learned something valuable
