The College of Maritime Transport and Technology Simulators Center (CMTT-SIM) consists of Bridge Simulators, Full Mission Engine Room Simulator (FMERS), and Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator (LCHS), all of which provide education, training and assessment for both operational and managerial levels.
Navigator competency items related to navigation bridge operations are practiced and assessed using the Navi-Trainer Professional 5000 simulator:
- Plan and conduct a passage and determine position
- Maintain a safe navigational watch.
- Use radar/ARPA and ECDIS to maintain safety of navigation
Respond to emergencies
- Respond to a distress signal at sea.
- Manoeuvre the ship.
- Plan a voyage and conduct navigation.
- Determine position and resultant position fixing accuracy by any means.
- Determine and allow for compass errors.
- Coordinate search and rescue operations.
- Establish watchkeeping arrangements and procedures.
- Maintain safe navigation through the use of information from navigation equipment and systems to assist command decision-making.
- Maintain the safety of navigation through the use of ECDIS and associated navigation systems to assist command decision making.
- Manoeuvre and handle a ship in any condition.
- Operate remote controls of propulsion plant and engineering systems and services
Full Mission Engine Room Simulator
The Engine Room Simulator was developed for the education, training and assessment of Engine Department Personnel, including Officers In-Charge of Watch, Second and Chief Engineers.

- Watchkeeping Procedures.
- Updating of Seagoing Engineering Personnel.
- Refresher Courses
Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator
TRANSAS Liquid Cargo Handling simulators are designed to train and certify crewmembers of liquid cargo tankers, as well as other staff responsible for the safe cargo handling and the operation of auxiliary equipment. Liquid Cargo Handling simulator provides an exact, detailed copy of vessel/terminal systems and its compartments. This simulator is an ideal solution for training centres, academies, government authorities, shipping companies, coastal centers and crewing agencies. The simulator also enables onboard training and demonstration of competency. Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator replicates a cargo control room, allowing a comprehensive study of the tanker and terminal layout, including its machinery and systems according to international standards and requirements:
- General arrangement of the tanker and its systems.
- Maintenance of the tanker systems at management level.
- Control of vessel ballast system.
- Control of trim, stability and stress.
- Prevention of oil pollution from the ship.
- Proficiency in tanker technological operation.
- Monitor the loading, stowage, securing and unloading of cargoes and their care during the voyage.
- Maintain seaworthiness of the ship, plan and ensure safe loading, stowage, securing, care during the voyage and unloading of cargoes.
- Control of pump and piping systems.
- Operation of ballast and cargo handling system.
- Control trim, stability and stress.
- Resource management.
- Respond to emergencies.
- Take precautions to prevent pollution of the environment.
- Tanker/terminal interaction: cargo transfer systems, shore storage, shore equipment and instrumentation.
- Safely perform and monitor all cargo operations
