Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) has newly added a Full Mission Bridge and an Engine Room simulator at its training centre in Limassol, Cyprus, the only centre with the technology on the island, the company says.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Training will be offered to BSM’s own officers, with the centre also available for external training in the region. STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping) courses, as well as tailor-made customer courses for Deck and Engineer officers, will be offered at the facility.

The bridge simulator consists of two separate 180 degree visualisation bridges equipped with various controls and systems, including ECDIS, RADAR/ARPA, VHF, bow and stern thrusters, simulated anchoring and mooring, use of tugs for berthing assistance, and GMDSS radio communication.

The user can select vessels from the library of 40 different ship types, operating in 25 sea and port areas. The Bridge Simulator also connects with the newly installed Engine Room Simulator enabling up to six students to train in ship manoeuvring and machinery operations on individual stations.

“With training and the emphasis we place on career development of our sea staff being at the forefront of our philosophy, BSM have invested in our facilities in Cyprus with the addition of this new equipment, which takes the Centre to another level and further promotes our ability as the leading training provider in the region. This also aligns the Centre in Cyprus with our facilities in Manila and Mumbai,” said John Pritchett, corporate manager HRM – training and development, at BSM.{/mprestriction}
