MSI Offers Naval And Commercial Training At Simulator Complex

M a r i n e S a f e t y I n t e r n a t i o n al (MSI), a professional training organization, operates a shiphandling simulator training complex in Newport, R.I. The complex houses four interactive ship simulators. Unique features of the complex are a "true" bridge wing simulator, a wheelhouse simulator with a 250-degree visual including a view over the stern and multi-media learning feedback centers.

In addition to training up to 1,200 Naval officers per year, the MSI complex is used to train merchant marine officers and harbor pilots.

Courses have been conducted for Chevron, American President Lines and many other U.S. and Canadian companies.

The bridge wing simulator is an excellent tool for training pilots in the techniques of close-in maneuvering and docking. Courses have been conducted for the San Francisco Pilots, the State of California, and many Canadian pilot groups.

Training for Panama Canal Pilots at the Newport complex will begin in April.
