Since training is the other major activity of JAMS, the Training and Research Department undertakes the organization of training activities in topics related to maritime transport industry such as shipping, insurance, law, claims, etc., in addition to supportive fields management, engineering, finance, accounting, etc. An annual training plan is developed annually by the department covering above fields and is distributed locally and to Arab countries.
The department carries out studies, researches and consultations in maritime transport issues locally, regionally and internationally in accordance with request and need of governmental bodies, or private organizations, In addition to studies related to assessment of students achievement level as well as analysis of exams success percentage and other academic studies.
The department also receives marine masters and officers, and engineers of all ranks willing to attend specialized training courses or to get their certificates renewed and replaced by Jordanian certificates of competency.
To enhance the practical component of maritime training, in compliance with international requirements. JAMS has established a navigation and communication simulation lab where a number of highly specialized training courses related to the bridge are held. They include:
-Berthing and Towing
The new lab is the most advanced and sophisticated in the region manufactured by “TRANSAS” to comply with STCW 78 as amended, requirements.
It is another step forward within JAMS developmental activities which aim to ensure high quality educational and training outputs.
It is a full mission engine room simulator which along with the navigation simulator, complete the simulators systems in the academy.
It has been selected from among the newest models of simulators that are fully compliant with the most recent STCW requirements as well as with valid DNV standard for a systems, one of the most important components of the simulator is the mathematical models of the vessel machinery as well as specific control systems.
For the purpose of designing the simulators, a vessel was selected to include all operational systems; it was a crude oil tanker.
As a step toward improving our facilities with the latest technology equipment’s, we at JAMS installed full mission liquid cargo handling simulator ( Transas 5000) that includes different types of liquid cargo vessel models, all of which are certified by DNV and GL, and match the existing STCW requirements and beyond.
The simulator based on actual ship specifications and performance data, a real automation system, provided with high-quality training, starting from single sub-system to the overall running of loading / discharging operation, handling of emergency situations, loading control system which includes Tanks, hull strength, ship stability, and ship loading that is calculated by the Load Calculator System in the Simulator.
This program links all necessary shipboard calculations including stability and strength. The inclusion of this program is driven by STCW 2010 recommendation B 1/12, i 40 (2, 3).
Training department also carries out studies, researches and consultations in maritime transport issues locally, regionally and internationally in accordance with request and need of governmental bodies, or private organizations.
An annual training plan is developed annually by the department covering above fields and is distributed locally and to Arab countries.
