GAC Training & Service Solutions (GTSS) were again delighted with the coverage received in the 21st of October edition of Fairplay!
The article brought to light the current need for STS Training in the Maritime Industry. The oil majors, Ship Owners and Operators and Authorities are now facing pressure to ensure that STS activities are carried our competently by proactively managing the risks to vessels, equipment, and the environment.
Clive Hotham who is GTSS’s Ship to Ship (STS) Transfer Operations Course Lecturer was interviewed for the article. Clive is also a lecturer in nautical studies at the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI). He mentions the Bridge Simulators used at the NMCI for the STS Transfer course and how they can simulate the challenges of operating in varying weather conditions and can demonstrate how different conditions and situations can impact those on the bridge.
Our GTSS Ship to Ship (STS) Transfer Courses provide delegates with the confidence and practical knowledge to deal with ship handling. Ship handling experience is critical to the successful execution of delicate operations like STS. Simulator training is the ideal way to increase experience without the risks associated with training on the job.
