Ft. Lauderdale-based Resolve Maritime Academy has opened a Transas engine room simulator platform, the ERS 5000 TechSim as part of the Academy’s Simulation Training Center.
The simulator has enabled Resolve to expand its course offerings to engineers and is connected to the school’s full-mission bridge simulator.
“Connecting the simulators means we can offer Resource Management and Integrated Systems training to our clients,” said David Boldt, Simulation Training Group Manager at Resolve Maritime Academy.
Resolve Maritime Academy hired Rosemary Mackay, an engineer with nine years of experience in maritime education (and 12 years of at-sea experience) to manage the simulator. She joins the Academy from Star Center, where she instructed classes and was involved in course design and development.
The simulator meets STCW code requirements and the scope of training objectives corresponds to specifications of standard competence for engine department personnel, which provide for the use of simulators for training engineers as well as engineering instruction for operational, management and support personnel.
