MSI Offers Pilot-Specific

Bridge Resource Workshop

Bridge Resource Management (BRM) will be applied to the role of the marine pilot in a new training program available from

MarineSafety International (MSI).

Entitled "Bridge Resource Man- agement for Marine Pilots," the workshop was developed for pilot- age organizations in response to initiatives from the American Pi- lots Association and recommenda- tions from both the U.S. Coast

Guard and the National Transpor- tation Safety Board.

The BRM training program for marine pilots available from MSI is presented as an initial workshop with optional follow-on training. Re- current training, in the form of either a one-day seminar/workshop or a three- to five-day program us- ing simulator-based exercises, is rec- ommended to keep skills sharp through periodic reinforcement.

MSI has been conducting shiphandling training for marine pilots, the U.S. Navy and other com- mercial clients since 1974 with simu- lator complexes located in Kings

Point, N.Y., Newport, R.I., San Di- ego, Calif., and Rotterdam, The

Netherlands. For more informa- tion on the new training workshop,
