Navigation Skills Assessment Program (NSAPĀ®)

Please visit or Download our comprehensive brochure here.

This innovative Navigation Skills Assessment Program utilizes custom simulation scenarios and assessment criteria based on a company's defined knowledge and skill requirements to objectively measure the mariner's performance. The results: Knowledge and skill gaps are identified and recommendations are made.

Areas assessed during the simulation include:

  • COLREGS / Rules of the Road
  • Situational Awareness
  • Bridge Resource Management
  • Company Policies and Procedures
  • Communication
  • Systems

Performance at each measurement point is rated: Highly Effective; Effective; Not Effective; and, in some cases Unsatisfactory. using a numerical point scale.

A comprehensive report is generated at the end of each assessment session for review purposes. This report includes the evaluator(s) observations and comments for each attendee and general recommendations that address the individual's knowledge and skill gaps. Observations and recommendations may include further training or implementation of additional company policies and procedures.

This Navigation Skills Assessment Program provides a safe and meaningful experience for mariners to improve on their performance, especially if the company has recently experienced an incident.
