The book is meant to support a simulator-based course covering these requirements. On completion of the BRM-TL course, as detailed in this book, participants are expected to gain enhanced knowledge in the areas of effective management and optimum utilisation of all resources, required for the safe and successful conduct of a ship’s voyage. BRM-TL course emphasises the non-technical skills of the bridge-team, which include managing human factors, effective communications,processes of team-building and leadership . To manage bridge processes, the book provides guidance on situational awareness, including team situational awareness, decision-making, contingency planning, as well as task management covering fatigue and workload planning. Additionally, this book introduces the concept of behavioural markers for assessing these soft skills to establish performance levels during a simulated exercise. Examples of behavioural markers applicable in a full-mission simulator-based exercise are also included.
