Simulator training & assessing for the Maritime industry

A simulators “fidelity” is the extent to which it can replicate the experience of a real work environment.
Todays simulators have taken the lead in training and assessing tools that mirror real life scenarios.
It has been inferred that computer generated simulators and those simulators with higher realism are likely to produce better training and assessing outcomes than traditional methods.
Simulators are now a primary learning tool in maritime education to provide opportunities for seafarers to obtain technical, procedural and operational assessments while avoiding both the risks and expense that accompany on-the-job training.
In recent mariner review’s, results revealed that mariners preferred bridge simulators over traditional methods and experienced higher motivation and confidence.
