CMU Training Philosophy
Constanta Maritime University Dynamic Positioning Training Centre through DP Instructors, runs DP Induction and DP Simulator Courses, and, throughout the courses, CMU DP Training Centre assures that:
• Each learner is instructed during induction that if at any time they become concerned about anything, they will be able to discuss their issues with us;
• Health and safety issues are addressed daily in the classroom;
• Tutorials are carried out for all of our learners;
• Regular breaks for refreshments;
• Efforts towards students own development are openly encouraged;
• Learners are encouraged to be considerate of others within their learning environment;
• Group and paired working to encourage team work and peer learning when appropriate;
• Learners are all working towards a qualification to allow for future employment and economic well-being.
To promote Equality and Diversity during teaching activities, Constanta Maritime University Dynamic Positioning Training Centre assures that:
• More capable students are encouraged to assist less capable learners;
• Possible that due to diverse nationalities, clearer translation of some terms are required;
• Timetable designed to offer a good balance of practical and theory sessions that inter-relate;
• Good examples of differentiation being embedded in both practical and classroom session with schemes of work designed to have, where possible, corresponding class and practical work.
The individuals’ progress is measured throughout teaching period using different techniques: Monitoring, Questioning techniques, On-going assessment and Practical sessions. The results of the assessments are discussed with students so that to be aware about their own progress during the courses, and the DP Instructor to be aware of their need for additional assistance and act accordingly.
