Course outline

General Information

Duration: 2 days (16 hours)
Venue: Rotterdam
Prerequisites:

The students shall have a basic understanding of vessel operations
and marine terminology. They will be familiar with at least NMEA and MODBUS protocols in both TCP/IP and serial versions.
Participants can meet our prerequisites by attending one of our e-learning courses.

Additional information: When the complete classroom originates from one company, specific cases (based on the client operated vessels) will be presented and discussed. Please note that a notebook with OCTOPUS software is provided by the training facility. If you wish to use your notebook, please let us know before the course will take place. This course is considered to be obligatory for personnel who wishes to commission OCTOPUS systems.
Student profile:

The training is targeted to service engineers, ETOs, technical superintendents and electrical engineers.
