LAIRDSIDE MARITIME CENTRE

The Laird­side Mar­itime Cen­tre is part of Liv­er­pool John Moores Uni­ver­sity (LJMU). The Uni­ver­sity has an exten­sive mar­itime his­tory with expe­ri­ence in the train­ing and devel­op­ment of Mar­itime Pro­fes­sion­als, Deck Offi­cers and Marine Engi­neers, and the pro­vi­sion of Grad­u­ate and Post­grad­u­ate Degree courses in the Mar­itime and Trans­port Industries.

Laird­side Mar­itime Cen­tre cur­rently pro­vides the facil­i­ties to meet the train­ing needs of the mar­itime indus­try. At the heart of the Cen­tre is a ship-​handling sim­u­la­tor that is amongst the most advanced in Europe and cur­rently the only one in the UK with a 360° field-​of-​view visual system.

The cen­ter offers a full range of nav­i­ga­tional and ship-​handling courses with a high degree of real­ism. In addi­tion, there are facil­i­ties for GMDSS radio courses and non-​simulator courses as well as access to all LJMU mar­itime degree and non-​degree programs.
