This course provides training to officers in charge of a navigational watch to operate ships in polar waters and to address those additional provisions as required by the Polar Code, in order to take into account the climatic conditions of polar waters and to meet appropriate standards of maritime safety and pollution prevention.
What to expect
The objective of this course is to familiarise the participants with navigating in ice-covered areas including specific problems that come with it. Countries having to deal with ice navigation, urge to implement IMO guidelines in a course and certify participants. For those regularly sailing in ice-covered waters demands become more and more stringent, especially the Polar regions press for better education concerning this kind of specialised navigation.
