Palma de Mallorca – February 27, 2014 – Six months after the initial installation of a classroom of NAUTIS Desktop Trainers, the Aigua Sea School in Mallorca has placed a follow-up order to further expand its simulator training capacity.
The follow-up order for NAUTIS simulators was placed after positive feedback from both students and instructors about the ease of use, realism and advanced training possibilities the NAUTIS Desktop Trainers offered.
With a strong reputation in high quality maritime training, Aigua Sea School experienced a strong growth throughout 2013, cumulating in an increase in student applications and official Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Certification application in January 2014. The MCA application is done using the NAUTIS Desktop Trainers and will give official recognition in the superyachting industry for all Aigua training courses.
NAUTIS Desktop Trainers are high quality simulators that allow training of many competencies, including ECDIS Model Course 1.27, Radar/ARPA Model Course 1.07, VHF Radio Communications, Navigational Instruments (GPS, AIS, Echo Sounder, Speed Log) and advanced ship handling & manoeuvring.
The follow-up order of NAUTIS Desktop Trainers was delivered and installed by VSTEP at the Aigua Sea School headquarters in Palma.
