That of tugs is a real-world within the maritime field.
Fascinating, adventurous and complex. A tugboat Captain must know the theory surrounding these vessels and, even more, must have the ability to shape it with his own experience in the environment in which he works, considering the numerous variables and then adapt everything to the style of manoeuvre of the pilot on duty. Not everyone can stand out in this work. The Port Tug Course deals with essential topics; as we always say: we propose the theory necessary for practice.

The learning outcomes of the course Part 2 of 2 will include:

Knowledge of Push, Pull, Push & Pull methods
How Many Tugs to Use
Importance of Teamwork: Master, Pilot and Tug’s Captain
Knowledge in Tug Wash Effect – Coanda
How To Work in the Fog
Three examples of real-life Ship handling
