The Marine Navigation Centre offers training and development to students and external organisations through modern, state-of-the-art facilities.  
From learning how to navigate super tanks or superyachts, to providing professional development courses tailored to specific organisations, it aims to train professional seafarers and meet the needs of the maritime world. 

The Ship Simulator

The Ship Simulator is powered by the world-leading Tranas NTPRO software, and is able to recreate the environment of a real vessel navigating the oceans. 
This state-of-the-art facility uses advanced computer imaging, projection, and a 270-degree screen to conjure a highly-detailed visual canvas upon which mariners can learn to perfect their skills, using exactly the same systems they would at sea.

The ECDIS Lab provides the capacity for training professional seafarers in the correct use of modern electronic chart systems which are becoming mandatory for use on all commercial vessels. 
The adjoining Chart Room is a flexible teaching space which can also be used for practising 'traditional' navigation using paper charts.
