Waves and Means Ltd is an innovative company supplying a unique range of educational resources useful to Maritime Training establishments. Resources have been carefully developed to assist and enhance the understanding of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (Colregs).
Large class sizes have meant the delivery to oral preparation classes has been challenging for lecturers, particularly when explaining the application and interpretation of the Colregs. Experience has found computer-based packages less versatile with students much preferring ‘hands-on’ physical resources in order to deepen their understanding of the regulations.
Maritime Training aids, aligned to international IMO & STCW standards, have been developed by experienced maritime lecturers using their wealth of experience and knowledge of the industry. The training aids allow the lecturer to quickly set a shipboard scenario and question the student, effectively gauging their level of understanding.
To set the standard for maritime training aids. Gone are the days of using cigarette packets and board rubbers as training resources. 20 years’ experience of delivering lecturers and examining maritime students have led to the manufacture of a UNIQUE ROR and Buoyage Training aid.
Service agreements established with wide range of shipping companies and STCW examination centres in the UK and abroad. Resource boxes now available in the products page.
