Basic Marine Operations

Customized training for professional marine services
Designed for new recruits or entry level crews, this course develops individual seamanship skills and places them into the context of marine competencies so teams may learn to use their equipment and vessels to manage situations. By starting at the basic skill components like seamanship, navigation, radar theory and plotting VMT builds the abilities of the crew members individually and then cooperatively. When the teams are ready to progress, VMT will set up challenging scenarios for the boat teams to work through in realistic settings.
