Abstract: A cohesive research program has been initiated by the Computer Aided Operations Research Facility (CAORF) of the National Maritime Research Center to investigate the simulator-based training system. This research program has been focusing on characteristics of the simulator and other training system elements, to evaluate their relative cost effectiveness in the achievement of deck officer training objectives. This joint U. S. Coast Guard/Maritime Administration project seeks to delineate the role of the ship bridge simulator in the mariner training and licensing process. A major product of this research program will be the development of training system acceptance criteria for use by the U. S. Coast Guard in the approval of simulator-based training programs for meeting some licensing requirements. These will constitute a major product of the current phase of the investigation. The approach being followed to develop this product will be summarized, as well as insight provided into the likely role of the ship bridge simulator in the deck officer training and licensing process in the near future.
