Course Description

The two-day tractor tug course provides the same knowledge as the three-day course but has less practical training in the shiphandling simulator. The course covers a number of areas in both the classroom and on the shiphandling simulator to demonstrate the capabilities and limitations of tractors.

What You Will Learn

  • Understanding how tractors could change the operation of your port by handling larger ships, reducing environmental restrictions, or by reducing the number of tugs required to handle a certain size ship
  • Providing the knowledge to define the maneuvering mission of your port and then to choose the proper tractor to meet this standard
  • Tractor commands and standard definitions
