Djibouti Training Center Installs New Simulator

The simulator training room consists of 11 trainee consoles and an instructor's work station, as well as software for modules such as Marine Communication, Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and Search and Rescue (SAR).

The Djibouti Regional Training Centre (DRTC) has been equipped with a modern computer-based training simulator as part of the International Maritime Organization's efforts to promote maritime safety and security in the West Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden. The center is partially funded by IMO and supports implementation of the Djibouti Code of Conduct, the international treaty that has been working to prevent piracy and armed robbery against ships in the region.

The equipment, which was funded through a contribution to the Djibouti Code of Conduct Trust Fund by the Kingdom of Denmark, has been installed and the first cohort of Djibouti officers have been trained to operate it.

The simulator training room consists of 11 trainee consoles and an instructor's work station, as well as software for modules such as Marine Communication, Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and Search and Rescue (SAR). It can be used for maritime safety and security scenario simulation and also includes animation and video clips, printed and electronic textbooks and training syllabus.

The installation comes after an October workshop on the prevention of a resurgence of piracy in the West Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden. The workshop also addressed other transnational organized crimes at sea that threaten the security of navigation.
