The Rule of the Road (ROR) Command Assessment Package is designed to assess the capabilities of those in Command of vessels on the high seas in respect of their knowledge of The International Regulations For Preventing Collisions At Sea.
The assessment package is covered in one day however ECDIS Ltd has also produced a two day package which essentially consists of revision and an objective assessment of individual capabilities. The two day package will provide the highest quality of instruction with practical discussion, lessons learnt from historical incidents, timed written ROR papers and high-integrity bridge simulation for the assessment phase.
The package has been designed at a baseline level but the content, including but not limited to scenario construction and open discussion can be varied to better match individual customer requirements. The final assessment summaries can then be forwarded to parent companies (unless used for individual training/accreditation) for any action as required.
The candidates who attend the ROR package will have been assessed independently on their abilities to apply the rules at sea. This will give both parent companies and shipping insurance companies a system of quality assurance of the capabilities of those in Command of vessels on the high seas. The intent of the assessment package is to ensure competence in the application of ROR at sea in accordance with The International Regulations For Preventing Collisions At Sea. The package consists of timed, written ROR tests, discussions (both instructor and student-led) and simulator scenarios designed to achieve the intent as above. There will be multiple simulator scenarios to put the classroom theory into practice. Home study is required in preparation for this entire package. This assessment package is designed for those both newly qualified and currently in Command of merchant vessels.
