Course DescriptionCrew Endurance Management Systems (CEMS)
This course is designed for maritime employees who will be introduced to the basic concepts of the Crew Endurance Management System in a 4 hour presentation that includes a discussion exercise in small groups, a presentation by the group in the classroom. The 24/7 nature of maritime operations (be they commercial, military or governmental) exposes crewmembers to a number of risk factors that can degrade crew endurance (that is, the physical stamina and mental alertness of the crew)
This Course was designed as part of a regional approach to a Crew Endurance Management Program for the Pacific Northwest Towing Industry. For more information on this regional approach, please contact Mr. Gregg Trunnell at 206 719-2801.
