This book assesses the state of practice and use of ship-bridge simulators in the professional development and licensing of deck officers and marine pilots. It focuses on full-mission computer-based simulators and manned models. It analyzes their use in instruction, evaluation and licensing and gives information and practical guidance on the establishment of training and licensing program standards, and on simulator and simulation validation.In cases where a simulator-based training course is integrated into the licensing process, the instructor and assessor must be two different people. ... The current program has evolved ad hoc rather than through systematic technical analysis.
