Abstract:

This experiment the first attempt to study the transfer of training from the CAORF Ship Simulator to the real world. First class midshipmen from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy served as test subjects. Half the group had no simulator experience while the other half had participated in a ten-week simulator training program. Both groups were tested on a range of sailing tasks in the New Haven Channel on the academys training vessel, the TA KINGS POINTER. The superior performance of the simulator-trained group over the non-trained group, indicates that skills acquired on the CAORF simulator may indeed be transferred to an actual shipboard task.
