WP 11100 [DST]


In WP 5000, the remote control station is being developed and is expected to be different from a conventional wheelhouse. Even qualified, experienced skippers will therefore have to be trained for remote control before they can use it. For this purpose, a training concept will be developed that can later be used to qualify all shipmasters for remote steering. The training concept will require the qualification “shipmaster”, i.e. there will be no pure training for “remote control shipmaster”, but it will be an additional qualification.

However, training concepts will be developed that can also be applied in initial training, so that trainees can come into contact with remote control at an early stage and learn about the attractiveness of this way of working.

Furthermore, proposals are being developed as to how the examination guidelines for the European Certificate of Competency can be extended so that the additional qualification of “remotely piloting skipper” can also be demonstrated in an examination. The conceptual design and testing of guidelines will be supported by the experiences from the examinations for WP 5300 as well as WP 10500. Furthermore, expert interviews of the involved skippers will be conducted. The practical learning concept will be implemented in parallel to the conceptual design directly at the helm (in simulation mode) by developing curricula, allowing direct iterations between variants of the learning concept (Agile Development). It is also envisioned that training and testing for the remotely piloting skipper can be conducted on existing simulators in accordance with CESNI 2018-II-14 and ES-QIN 2018, respectively.
