The objective of this training is to increase both technical and operational knowledge about cruise ships for those working in shipyards.
The course is usually conducted as an in-house training and can be tailored for a shipyard working on a specific project, where own documents can be utilized for some of the learning activities.
Some prior knowledge of ship design principles is recommended
Who should attend:
Duration: 2 days
This two-day training is highly interactive with an extensive use of real cases where possible, ideally supplied by the shipyard/course participants themselves. It targets design and proposal engineers, as well as technical staff and project managers who have experience with ship types other than cruise vessels.
The course provides guidelines on problem solving throughout all project phases, from design and proposal, to engineering, project management, construction and finally outfitting and commissioning.
Upon completion, the participants will have a better global insight into the technical challenges, customer requirements and regulatory framework that govern the construction of a cruise ship. With their deeper understanding of the issues they will be able to contribute fully to problem solving and project management during design, construction and commissioning, and be better equipped to formulate in-depth questions when working with the various discipline experts.
The course focuses on:
- The cruise ship market, main players, sub-segments and cultures
- Specific features/areas on the General Arrangement of a cruise ship
- Regulatory framework and the role of Class
- Technical focus areas for selected systems including fire safety, escape and lifesaving appliances
- Relevant passenger ship regulations from SOLAS
- Introduction to passenger ship requirements for hull, stability, noise & vibration
- Work processes for Polar Code, Safe Return to Port (SRtP) and Alternative Design
