Training for marine industry groups

Some eLearning courses are limited to specific maritime industry groups and require approval from us.

Search and rescue systems

Approval is required for this course.

SARMAP Marine Drift Modelling

This module has been designed to provide you with an understanding of SARMAP, the search and rescue mapping software used to predict the path of different floating objects as well as the potential origin of found objects. Simulation activities are used throughout the course to guide learners through the SARMAP system.

After completing this course, learners will be familiar with the operational functions and features of SARMAP and know how to independently run the SARMAP drift model, forwards and backwards, for persons or objects that are lost at sea. Learners will be able to compare the model predictions to known object locations and obtain wind and current data by accessing Environmental Data Servers (EDS). The module will provide information on how to produce search planning reports including Google Earth, AVI video file, PowerPoint file and a Word document from the drift model outputs.

Coastal pilot systems

Approval is required for this course.

UKCM for Pilots, Providers and REEFVTSO

The module provides training for Coastal Pilots in the Under Keel Clearance Management (UKCM) System, designed to enhance the safe and efficient passage of deep draught vessels transiting Torres Strait.

The UKCM System ensures that the best possible under keel clearance information is available to assist in the planning and conduct of vessel transits, thereby contributing to protecting the marine environment and enhancing the safety and efficiency of navigation in Torres Strait.

If you are an AMSA licenced Coastal Pilot, on successful completion of this module you will be required to arrange for an assessment with an AMSA officer to satisfy that you have the necessary ability to monitor, analyse and evaluate UKCM system data and effectively use key UKCM system functionality and resolve hypothetical situations. This assessment can be arranged for a time that suits both the user and AMSA assessing personnel.
