Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) Training Centre
AMCS offers the widest range of IALA approved Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) training courses in Australia.. The courses are led by internationally regarded VTS Instructor, Mr. Robert Shaw and are conducted on a fully accredited purpose built VTS training centre, which is located at the Newnham Campus.
The simulator provides trainee operators with Radar, AIS, and four VHF frequencies for communication with traffic ships. The facility has synchronised playback capability enabling visual observation of vessel traffic movement while reviewing voice communications between VTS operators and the vessel traffic in their area.
