Ship Handling Courses

Lerus offers a range of ship handling training courses, which cover a broad range of navigation and specific offshore operations. Each course is designed to train and test the competence and knowledge of different groups of applicants, beginning with novices up to skilled mariners.


The safe handling of ships depends on many factors - on ship's maneuvering characteristics, human factor (operator experience and skill, his behavior in stressed situation, etc.), actual environmental conditions, and degree of water area restriction.
Results of analysis of casualties and accidents show that in one third of all, human error is involved and the same amount of damages are attributed to poor controllability of ships. Training on ship handling is one of the most effective methods for improving the safety at sea. The goal of the above training is to gain theoretical and practical knowledge on ship handling in a variety of different situations met in practice at sea.
Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator is very efficient in hands-on training due to its modeling, which is as close to the seafarers' real environment and context as possible.
