QUALIFICATION AND TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR VESSEL TRAFFIC SERVICE OPERATORS

There is at present little commonality in the qualification and training requirements for vessel traffic service (VTS) operators. The aim of this paper is to contribute toward the solution of this problem by identifying the functions to be performed by VTS operators and then considering the skills and knowledge necessary for the operator to carry out these functions. The author presents recommendations for three levels of VTS operator qualification requirements and stresses the need for more formal and consistent training programs.
