About the course

The VTS Operator Basic Training course is intended for seafarers with the minimum qualification Watchkeeping Officer or equivalent. If participants do not fulfill the prerequisites, we can arrange the necessary training for them. The course comprises six modules, which are Language, Traffic Management, Equipment, Communication coordination, Personal Attributes and Emergency situations.

Each of the modules deals with a specific subject representing a requirement or function of a VTS Operator, followed by simulated exercises intended to represent events and incidents likely to be experienced in a VTS centre. The course fulfills the IALA VTS training requirements.

On successful completion:
• participants will have sufficient knowledge and competence to proceed to an on-the-job training (OJT) in a VTS Centre.
• participants can work as VTS operators, given that local requirements and the OJT training is completed.
