Den Helder college adds new simulators

The Maritime Training School ROC Kop van Noord-Holland is set to install a simulator centre from VSTEP at its Nautical College in Den Helder in the Netherlands.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal includes three NAUTIS DNV Class B simulators, three NAUTIS Desktop Pro simulators including instructor stations, and an Engine Room simulator classroom with 15 trainee stations.

The ROC Kop van Noord-Holland provides vocational courses and training in the northern part of the province of North Holland. The Nautical College is certified by the ministry of Infrastructure, Living environment and Transportation (IL&T) in the Netherlands, which is a requirement for any maritime training institute offering STCW certified courses in the country.

With the addition of the simulators, the ROC’s Nautical College will enable its students to practise new ship and boat handling skills through certified training courses in accordance with the latest national and international standards.

Three new custom environments have been added to the existing simulator library. The new environments include the Wadden Islands, the North Holland Coastline and the NIOZ Port, which were all recreated for use in the simulators.

“The Nautical College now has state of the art simulators,” said Aad de Wit, chairman of the executive board of the ROC Kop van Noord-Holland.

“It will, no doubt, further enhance our position as an outstanding centre of excellence in providing education and training for seafarers. By providing optimal training for the growing number of students, the Nautical College caters to the shipping industry’s training needs.”{/mprestriction}
