This document provides general provisions and minimum criteria for using virtual reality and simulator equipment and systems instead of live training and drills with lifesaving appliances and arrangements, such as those required by SOLAS and MODU Code. This document is not intended to provide a generic training programme for the purposes of meeting International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) requirements.
This document serves to support the use of training devices (TD) onboard vessels that can deliver training and drills required by regulation, as well as additional non-obligatory training to crew. It is understood that training devices described in this document are used as an alternative to actual participation with and operations of lifesaving appliances (LSA) products during drills to meet mandatory training requirements.
