Vane Bros’ Mariners Join in Bridge Resource Mgmt Refresher
Last updated on Feb 24, 2023 | Blog
Earlier this year Vane Brothers sent several dozen of their mariners to MITAGS facilities on both coasts for our Bridge Resource Management Refresher course.
This course explored several topics including situational awareness, the role of the towboat operator, voyage planning procedures, and working within a “Culture of Safety.” Each three-day BRM training session included classroom-based case-study analysis, as well as time spent on our simulators.
