An overview of AMC Search training, simulation and consultancy services for the Polar sector

Masters, Chief Mates and Officers in charge of a navigational watch on ships operating in polar waters are required by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to undertake Polar Code training.

AMC Search offers Australia’s only Polar Code training and includes basic and advanced training to meet the IMO’s requirements for all crew on vessels in the Arctic and Antarctic.

Seafarers on board passenger vessels operating in the polar regions can also complete AMSA-approved Crowd and Crisis Management training online.

Bespoke and Simulated Training

Our state-of-the-art maritime simulation facilities include a Full Mission Bridge: a full-scale mock-up of a ship and its surroundings. Rather than off-the-shelf solutions, we are experts in putting together bespoke simulated training that meets your organisation’s needs.

We have experience delivering polar navigation simulations and training, and our simulator includes models of Australia’s icebreaker, Aurora Australis.
