|The report on future skills concludes that the maritime professionals (both seagoing and shore-based) need an in-depth understanding of the sophisticated systems onboard.
The course aims to provide maritime professionals with the knowledge and skills required to use information infrastructure on board modern ships.
The maritime professional will be able to assess available data and be able to act upon this data.
The learning objectives focus on knowledge and skills related to:
a) structure, components, and essential maintenance of the shipboard network,
b) operation and use of different onboard sensors connected to the shipboard network,
c) nature and quality of shipboard generated data.
|This course targets any maritime professional at the STCW operational level (or currently undergoing training to achieve this level), e.g. a junior officer or cadet interested in upgrading or improving his/her digital knowledge and skills.|
|Participants' minimum competence requirements to successfully follow this educational package is a national equivalent of EQF level 4 - 5.|
|The suggested duration of this course is 21 hours spread over a four-week period.
The student should expect 21 hours of study, e.g. self-study by e-learning, directed study in a classroom and/or blended learning environment.
Provision should be made as appropriate for on board learners.
