USA: Cutter Suction Dredger Simulator Training Approaches

Dredge Technology Corporation (DTC) has announced that pre-registrations for its CSD Simulator Training have exceeded expectations. With the registration deadline closing in, the company is looking forward to commencing training sessions, starting April 7, 2013.

On April 7, the DTC Cutter Dredge Simulator Training will take place in the United States for the first time. Starting this date, the three-day trainings will be offered during a period of three weeks at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort located in Clearwater, Florida. The decision to bring this simulator training to the US has been welcomed with enthusiasm by the market. Most of the major players in the industry have already registered for the training.

The CSD Simulator program is aimed at practical applicability and has proven itself to be an excellent method to learn about and improve the overall dredging process. Trainings are led by highly experienced trainers with in-depth knowledge of cutter equipment, its possibilities and limitations, and ways to maximize production. During the training sessions, real-life scenarios are simulated and participants will practice responses to various dredging conditions.

Subject to level of dredging experience, participants may choose one of three types of simulator training:

-Training for Superintendents (requires no practical experience with operating a cutter suction dredger),

-Training for Novice Dredge Operators (requires participants to have some operational experience),

-Training for Experienced Dredge Operators (requires participants to be skilled dredge operators).

The training will be facilitated by the Netherlands-based Training Institute for Dredging (TID) whose Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD) Simulator will transported to the US specifically for this occasion.
