Maritime Crew Resource Management is our name for a comprehensive maritime CRM training programme upon which our Bridge Resource Management, Engine Resource Management and Human Element Leadership and Management courses and approvals are also based. Originally designed and developed by SAS Flight Academy (now part of CAE) we believe MCRM to be the best training system in the maritime industry, recognised as the benchmark for crew resource training by shipping organisations worldwide.
The overall aim of HELM-M is to provide masters and officers with the necessary knowledge, understanding and proficiency to safely and efficiently manage a ship’s resources and personnel.
CAE’s Bridge Resource Management training minimises human error ( by far the biggest cause of incidents and accidents ) by focusing on the non-technical skills required to achieve a safe and efficient passage.
CAE’s Engine Room Resource Management course addresses the behavior and attitudes which can lead to human error in control and engine rooms. Similar to accidents on the deck, research shows that the majority of engine room incidents- with both person and machinery damage- are related to human behavior.
Applicable for instructors wishing to deliver MCRM/BRM/ERRM and HELM training
Our training methodology and materials have been developed over a number of years and are based upon deep research into the non-technical skills required for safe and effective performance . We trained the maritime industries first BRM instructors over 25 years ago and have gone on to develop an instructor training programme of world renown.
To ensure the effective implementation of MCRM (including BRM & ERM) onboard and within shipping organisations CAE provides additional support courses.
