The SimED (Simulator Exercises Database) Simulator Instructor Camp was held from 13 to 15 March 2024 at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Conducting a seminar on the development of a database of training exercises for instructors of maritime educational institutions of IAMU members is an initiative of IAMU to implement the approved SimED project.

The event was attended 21 simulator instructors from 10 different countries and IAMU Deputy Executive Director Capt. Yusuke Mori. They joined the Camp to share knowledge and experience.

National University “Odessa Maritime Academy” was presented by Senior Lecturer of the Shiphandling Department Capt. Dmytro Zhukov.

An international project for a global network of IAMU member universities has been started. Participants met to discuss the development of the simulator database and future of the project. The aim of the project is to create an international database of exercises for maritime simulators with full partner’s review and approval. The first steps are the development of the standard exercise description template and exchange of the exercises between IAMU members.
