What is Bridge Resource Management? The Bridge Resource Management course introduces the concept of a navigation team to ship masters and watch officers and frames their decision making process toward establishing watch conditions during the course of the voyage. Bridge Resource Management techniques will emphasise decision making based upon conditions related to workload and potential threat to the vessel. The intent of the course is to define the individual task and responsibilities of the various team members while developing a situational awareness to prevent individual errors. Our trainees can expect a high proportion of simulator time, interspersed with lectures on human factors and decision making.
Gain experience in handling ships under various conditions and be able to make a more effective contribution to the bridge team during ship manoeuvring in normal and emergency conditions.
- Human factors
- Stress and fatigue
- Cultural and situational awareness
- Work load
- Team work
All our trainers are experienced navigators and will be drawing on experiences gained at sea to highlight important factors and to demonstrate effective processes in the classroom, then allowing for the processes to be developed in the Simulator. Candidates will be at times put under pressure within the controlled environment to utilise their newly developed skills, and will cover many aspects of resource management such as;
- Sensation, perception and cognition • Human factors
- Stress, fatigue and sleep
- Communication, Assertiveness, Leadership
- Decision making and problem solving
- Briefing and Debriefing
- Resource Management Planning
To have watch keeping experience and to have a certificate of Competency, Newly qualified OOW welcome.

- Integration Of Real-Time, Real-Life Data Is The Future Of Maritime SimulationNovember 14, 2017 - 2:24 pm
Bridge training has long been a reliable and productive training method. Allowing students to learn from “real life” scenarios in a safe environment. However, the real challenge has come for the trainers themselves; creating scenarios which are both challenging but still realistic. This is near impossible unless the trainer has a photographic memory of a previous […]
- Augmented reality finding its way into maritimeNovember 14, 2017 - 2:11 pm
Augmented reality (AR) is the up and coming technology for the maritime sector with solutions providers and shipyards leading its uptake into the industry. Blue Ocean Solutions, a subsidiary of Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M), is helping to refine the use of AR at Keppel shipyards that are involved in the servicing and […]
- The First All-Electric Autonomous ShipOctober 26, 2017 - 2:51 pm
A partnership between Norwegian fertilizer giant Yara International and marine technology leader Kongsberg Maritime is developing the container feeder vessel Yara Birkeland, the world’s first autonomous, zero-emissions battery-powered container ship. Yara Birkeland’s batteries will be charged with clean Norwegian hydro-power during loading and unloading, lowering yearly CO2 emissions by about 700 tons, explained Esben Tuman, Yara’s corporate communications VP. “The […]
- Virtual reality – Maritime Simulators training for seafarersOctober 26, 2017 - 2:31 pm
Maritime simulators are now the modern way to gain competence. Beginning with basic navigation but now extending to almost every aspect of ship operation including specialist aspects such as crane handling and towing, They have advanced hugely since the early days when only a basic computer screen was available and now offer a degree of […]
