Kongsberg launches K-Master course

Kongsberg Maritime reports that it has completed development and the pilot course for a specialised training programme for offshore support vessel crews using its K-Master aft- and forward-bridge workstation.

The course will now form part of Kongsberg Maritime’s global training portfolio, after the company completed the K-Master training pilot course at its training centre in its headquarters in Kongsberg, Norway.

The aim of the training 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 functions, 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.

“Training for K-Master lends itself to the portable training course approach, as we are able to mimic its touch screen control system using tablet computers, which are small and very easy to transport,” said Arnstein Bugge, instructor and course designer, Kongsberg Maritime.

“We have developed a portable classroom that can accommodate a full session with eight participants, all while being compact enough to be carried in a small suitcase. This helps us to be flexible as the course can literally be carried out anywhere in the world at quite short notice.”
