Train the simulator trainer and assessor training

The qualification and experience of the instructor will play an important role just as its application to any course. Although, it is not only understood but implied as well, a seafaring background is a must. However, a seafaring background alone cannot be considered sufficient. What is necessary is an aptitude for maritime simulator training – an aptitude to pass on the knowledge. If one sees the level of maritime courses, i.e. courses for seagoing staff (short/specialized), seagoing staff (advanced), maritime safety/pollution prevention (administration), shipping company staff, long courses or STCW certificate courses, one would appreciate that the potential instructor will have to amalgamate his/her practical seafaring background with knowledge of pedagogy to be in a position to transfer knowledge.  
Ideally, those entering the course will have had some experience in training, although those who are about to enter the profession would also be suitable. The balance of new entrants to experienced participants will affect the nature of the course and the instructor should be made aware of this aspect well in advance. It is also preferred that the trainee has completed IMO Model Course 6.09 – Training Course for Instructors or a similar programme in which the underlying concepts and the principles of the pedagogical processes are dealt with.
