Through this project, a class and simulator was created to teach the basic and advanced ice navigation courses satisfy these requirements for U.S. mariners. Upon completion of these courses, American ship’s officers will have met or exceeded all Standards for Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) required by international maritime law.
