Team Building at the NMCI

Posted: February 6, 2017

Effective teamwork is at the heart of every successful operation. Every individual contributes to the success – or failure – of their team, so it’s vital for all members to work together as a single efficient unit.

NMCI Services offer Team Building courses featuring group exercises using our environmental pool, fire-fighting yard, damage repair unit and 360° bridge simulator to test and develop participants’ cooperation and problem-solving skills in a variety of outdoor and indoor scenarios.

A typical Team Building day might involve all the virtual thrills and spills of a navigational race around Governors Island in New York Harbour, as experienced in one of the college’s cutting-edge bridge simulators. It could challenge participants with a repair exercise in a rapidly flooding chamber in the Damage Repair Instructional Unit (DRIU), or it might test them to the maximum with a range of foul weather sea survival exercises in the environmental pool. The choice is yours!

Two groups from Irish Mainport Holdings enjoyed taking part in team building days at the NMCI during January and February of this year. Have a look at some of the images below to see just some of the pool team building elements in action.

For further information email services@nmci.ie and we will be happy to discuss our Team Building days in more detail.

Team Building – An important task for any manager

Posted: February 6, 2015

 

The NMCI provides Team Building courses to suit clients from all areas of industry. These courses can involve group exercises in our environmental pool, damage repair unit and our 360° full-mission bridge simulator. This high end team building program involves both outdoor and indoor challenges and problem solving.

 

Why is team building important? 

Team Building is an important task for any manager. One can always assemble a team, but building a team to perform at its best is not the easiest of tasks. That’s why we at NMCI offer a team building day at our state of the art  10 acre campus in Ringaskiddy, Co.Cork.  An array of activities can be offered as part of the Team Building course at NMCI which will meet the needs of each individual client. Our course offers your team an opportunity to improve listening, communication, adaptation, confidence and leadership skills, just to mention a few.

 

What’s involved?

We can simulate heavy weather conditions in our Environmental Pool i.e. thunder, lightning, rain, wind and waves or have your group navigate a complex set of shipping channels in our “Class A” 360° Degree full mission bridge simulator. All our team building activities require quick thinking, high levels of communication and team work due to the rapid nature of the day’s events.

 

Remember no matter what industry you and your team work in we can tailor a specific team building day to meet your needs. With a varied level of activities and an array of wet events to choose from you will be spoilt for choice.

 

Level 1: Fun & Enjoyable day out in a relaxed atmosphere

 

Level 2: Competitive

 

Level 3: Boot Camp Style (very competitive & physical; aimed at Adrenaline Junkies)
