This report addresses the proper use of the shiphandlingship bridge simulator in effectively conducting simulator training for senior commercial ship deck officers. Information regarding the three major elements of the training system - the simulator design, the training program structure, and the instructor qualifications - is compiled into a set of guidelines. These guidelines provide the potential user of simulator-based training at the senior mariner level with the information regarding considerations to be made during development and use of an appropriate simulator-based training system. Specifically, the purpose of this report is to establish criteria to guide U.S. Coast Guard personnel in the approval or disapproval of simulator training courses for partial credit toward licenses or license endorsements. A secondary objective is to assist ship operations personnel, as prospective customers, in the evaluation of simulator training courses for their personnel. Author
