“Resolve’s state of the art facility utilises the same equipment as we have on our ships, which makes it a perfect place to conduct simulation training for our officers,” said Svein Sleipnes, senior vice president of marine operations for Norwegian Cruise Line.
Norwegian’s simulation training was previously conducted in the Netherlands.
The suite of courses will include a five-day customised Bridge Resource Management course using Norwegian Cruise Line-specific policies and procedures.
“To the greatest extent possible, we make all efforts to customise our training to incorporate the policies and procedures of our clients,” said Denise Johnston, director of Resolve Maritime Academy.
“We look forward to working with Norwegian Cruise Line to assist them in developing realistic and relevant training that enhances the safety at sea for all passengers and crew.”
A wholly-owned subsidiary of RESOLVE Marine Group, Resolve Maritime Academy is a DNV-certified training centre based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specialising in bridge resource management, ship handling, and integrated systems training.
