THE USE OF HIGH FIDELITY SIMULATION IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF MINIMUM PROFICIENCY GOALS FOR MASTER LEVEL, SIMULATOR-BASED TRAINING PROGRAMS

As a result of the Port and Tanker Safety Act of 1978, the U.S. Coast Guard is currently considering deck officer license credits for the completion of an acredited simulator-based training course. In conjunction with MarAd, the USCG has sponsored a research program at CAORF to arrive at both design standards for simulation facilities and performance standards for program graduates. This paper describes the use of performance testing at the master level; its development, refinement, and final validation.
