ARPA Course with Simulated System

The Navi-Trainer Professional (NT PRO) ARPA Simulator from Transas Marine has been accepted by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) for use in approved ARPA training courses. Transas Marine's simulated ARPA is unique in that it mimics real equipment found aboard ships, offering significant benefits over generic simulated ARPA trainers. ARPA units simulated include those manufactured by Litton Marine Systems (LMS/Sperry/Decca), Kelvin Hughes, and Furuno.

"We are particularly proud of the latest edition to our suite of simulated ARPA, the Bridgemaster 'E' from Litton Marine" noted Neil Bennett, Commercial Manager at Transas Marine USA. "This ARPA continues the trend in the industry of offering operational logic similar to that found on a PC with trackball and buttons. Each Transas simulated ARPA functions exactly like the equivalent real ARPA unit, and in the case of the LMS Bridgemaster 340 and E, can be equipped with real control keyboards interfaced to the PC for added realism. The cost advantage and added training flexibility for training schools utilizing this system are significant, not only in initial investment, but also in ongoing maintenance and upgrade, all of which result in clear benefits to the Seafarer looking to achieve ARPA certification.

The key is that by simulating real equipment the student still has the opportunity to learn the 'knobology' and logic associated with the systems they will find aboard ship."
