Arctic Education Implementing the Arctic Strategy in Training
Maine Maritime Academy
This project saw the development of an advanced ice navigation course required by the Polar Code for all masters and chief mates operating in polar waters. Through this project, a class and simulator was created to teach the basic and advanced ice navigation courses satisfy these requirements for U.S. mariners. Upon completion of these courses, American ship’s officers will have met or exceeded all Standards for Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) required by international maritime law.
