PureBallast 3 Computer-based training
You will have a practical familiarity with PureBallast 3 and its integration with the vessel’s piping and tanks. The course allows you to explore and operate a computer-simulated PureBallast 3 system, learning how to start processes and attend to alarms.
The e-learning course is intended as a complement to face-to-face instruction, which is always recommended for in-depth PureBallast 3 crew training.
PureBallast 3 Computer-based training (CBT) is an online/offline training tool that introduces the PureBallast 3 system layout and provides an overall understanding of how to navigate the control system. It comprises three different modules:
- Self-study covering the problem of invasive species, ballast water management, PureBallast 3 components and PureBallast 3 operation
- 3D simulation of PureBallast 3 and its operation
As an e-learning tool, available 24/7 from anywhere in the world, PureBallast 3 CBT makes it easier to determine, improve and maintain crew competence levels with regard to ballast water treatment. In this way, it helps ship owners and operators maximize the return on their equipment investment and feel confident in adhering to IMO and USCG legislation.
PureBallast 3 – Operation
In this e-learning you will learn more about the different operational modes (IMO and USCG) and how to operate the system in a compliant way. The e-learning combines text, videos and interactive exercises. The e-learning:
- Describes the differences between IMO and USCG operational modes
- Describes what measures are needed in order to be compliant with IMO and USCG regulations
- Enable you to apply the best practices on how to operate the PureBallast system
Deck department ranks: Master, chief officer, 2nd officer, 3rd officer and junior officer.
Before doing this course, you should be familiar with the working principle of the PureBallast system, and its components and processes. It is recommended to complete the PureBallast 3 CBT training module before starting this course.
- Operational modes: Differences between IMO and USCG operation, correct selection of operating mode, regulation of flow and power, etc.
- Compliant operation: Actions and activities needed for compliance, with difficult scenarios from real life as learning examples
- Best practices: Priming the piping for soft starts and stops, optimizing filter performance in heavily sedimented waters, etc.
