Fort Lauderdale, Florida, May 28, 2013 – Resolve Maritime Academy is completing the installation of a state-of-the-art Transas engine room simulator platform, the ERS 5000 “TechSim”, at its Fort Lauderdale, Florida Simulation Training Center adjacent to Port Everglades. The new Transas training platform has several versatile models to choose from — including podded and conventional vessels, diesel electric, and slow or medium speed plants. The ERS 5000 TechSim allows the Academy to expand its course offerings for engineers from all sectors of the maritime industry including the offshore, tanker and cruise sectors.
“The new engine room simulator will be connected to the Academy’s main bridge simulator, a Transas NT Pro 5000 Class-A Full Mission Bridge , which will enable combined bridge and engine room training options for various courses including Integrated Systems and Resource Management”, said Dave Boldt, Simulation Training Group Manager at Resolve. “The ability to combine engine room with bridge simulator training scenarios for Resource Management and Integrated Systems training is exceptionally valuable for our clients and their personnel,” Boldt added. The Academy plans to begin offering the new training programs this summer.
The Transas ERS TechSim is designed to meet the requirements of the STCW Code. The scope of training objectives corresponds to specifications of standard competence for engine department personnel (Chapter III of the STCW Code, IMO Model Courses 2.07, 7.02, 7.04), which provide for the use of simulators for training engineers as well as engineering training for operational, management and support personnel.
David Boldt, Simulation Training Group Manager at RESOLVE Maritime Academy is available for interview.
