Course Description

This course has been approved by the American Pilots Association and is required by all pilot groups. This 2-day course provides the principles and practices of Bridge Resource Management. Topics covered include an overview of Bridge Resource Management, Situational Awareness, Communications, and Risk Management. While the course is directed primarily to BRM from a pilot’s perspective, pilot’s must interact with masters and watch officers who work under regulations and guidance developed by international bodies, national administrations and company policies. Pilot’s should be made aware of the demands placed on bridge personnel by reviewing BRM requirements for ships in international trade, while also understanding that best local practices may differ from such generalized guidance addressed to masters and watchofficers.

This course satisfies the following STCW95 and CFR training requirements

  • 33 CFR 157.415 and §Part 164
