The task of manoeuvring a ship with the assistance of harbour tugs is a prime example of teamwork. The master and officers, the pilot, the tug skippers and the linesmen should collaborate as one team. This course is designed to demonstrate the manouvring possibilities of tugs and to be a guide to the efficient and safe use of tug assistance.
Knowledge of these factors should enhance the ability of all involved to combine their efforts in the sense of teamwork, with the ultimate goal of enhancing safety and efficiency of the vessel, tugs, property and personnel.
Participants should be in possession of at least a certificate for an officer in charge of a navigational watch.
On successful completion the participant will receive a certificate of MTC
