    Training // October 26, 2006

    Beier Radio president Karl Beier has announced that the company has received accreditation from the prestigious Nautical Institute for its Dynamic Positioning Training Course.

    “We are extremely pleased to receive this honor recognizing the high level of training our customers receive at our training centre,” Beier said. “Beier Radio is staying one step ahead of the industry to improve our program every year.”

    The dynamic positioning classes are held at the state-of-the-art Beier IVCS 2000 training facility at Beier Radio corporate headquarters in Belle Chasse, Louisiana, US. 

    The programme uses fully computerized training simulators with 3-D vessel simulation to allow the student to have the most realistic experience possible. 

    Each student workstation includes the Beier IVCS 2000 system and an individualized 3-D simulation display.

    “Because we are putting the most sophisticated control systems on our customer’s boats, we felt we had to offer them the most sophisticated training available on that equipment,” Beier said.

    “The Nautical Institute’s recognition of the superior training we offer is very satisfying. We are committed to becoming the best company we can be, so that the best companies will want to work with us.”

    The Nautical Institute is a London based independent organization recognized worldwide as a certification body for DP training for the worldwide maritime industry.

    Beier Radio, which was established in 1945, supplies electronic systems to the marine industry for navigation, vessel control and manoeuvring, equipment monitoring, communications and steering control.
