The Engine Room series comprisesof the following modules:

  • ENGINE ROOM OPERATIONS
  • ENGINEERING INSTRUCTIONS

ENGINE ROOM OPERATIONS

Purpose

This training module has been developed to provide an analysis of an efficient engine room personnel organisation, watchkeeping duties & arrangements when taking over watch and performing watchkeeping.

Further analysis is provided for a range of engineering practices both routine and emergency with a view to practically describe the actions to be taken by the personnel involved.

Finally the last part of the module deals with the unmanned operation and how the engine room personnel must act in case of emergency.

It is to be noted that the module has been developed in four parts and each part can be completed independently from the others.

Type of vessels

The module is applicable to all ships.
