SEN (L) is an operator's course, providing students with knowledge of the application of the Collision Regulations and principles to be observed in keeping a navigational watch while using electronic aids to plot the ship's position and progress. It also provides students with the appropriate action to take to avoid collisions in simulated exercises with the use of type-approved marine simulators.
Radio Communication (ROC-MC) and Chartwork and Pilotage, Level 1 (C&P1) and Navigation Safety, Level 1 (NS1) * Chartwork and Pilotage, Level 2 (C&P2) may be substituted for Chartwork and Pilotage, Level 1 (C&P1)
ORIGINAL and COPIES of prerequisites must be submitted to the instructor on the first day of the course. Required: Parallel rulers or navigational triangles, nautical dividers, 2B pencils, good quality eraser, calculator Note: Radar plotting sheets will be provided for use in the course
