C-MAR Group has installed and commissioned state-of-the-art Rolls-Royce Icon dynamic positioning simulators at its DP Training Centres in London and Mumbai. The new simulators are being used to deliver advanced DP courses run at both facilities.
Although the industry standard Nautical Institute Simulator Training Course permits training on just one system, the acquisition of the Rolls-Royce simulators further demonstrates the company’s commitment to setting new standards of excellence in DP training for the global marine sector.
Global DP training organisation
C-MAR is unique in being the only global DP training organisation with different manufacturers equipment in all its regional training centres: London, Mumbai, Croatia, Singapore and Brazil. Students benefit from the use of a multiple simulators to develop and strengthen their knowledge and skills. This instils greater confidence in practical operation and gives a deeper understanding of how DP controls work to deliver the vessel’s task, from dive support and anchor handling to platform supply and drilling operations.
Educated in the architecture of different programmes and able to explore Human Machine and Graphic User interfaces, students will adapt more easily to different programmes during their working life, ultimately making them better officers. They will also learn how different manufacturers approach the challenges posed by dynamic positioning operations.
C-MAR’s partnership with Rolls-Royce is based on recognition of its world-leading DP training expertise, as demonstrated by the provision of C-MAR instructors to the Rolls-Royce marine customer training centre in Niteroi, Brazil. Globally, an estimated 10 000 personnel have been trained since the programme’s inception in 2000, more than 4500 of them at the London centre.
