Basic Damage Control
Resolve Maritime Academy offers the dynamic and practical one-day Basic Damage Control Class. This course focuses on equipping participants with the necessary skills to effectively control flooding damage caused by cracks, holes, and ruptures in pipes, hull plates, and failed watertight fittings. Expert Damage Control Mariners guide students through hands-on field exercises, providing invaluable knowledge and expertise.
Throughout the course, trainees actively engage in problem-solving, communication, discovery, reporting, and prioritizing of damage repairs. They tackle various anomalies within our advanced Damage Control Trainer, which simulates flooding at a rate of 500 gallons per minute (GPM), creating a realistic training environment. Participants learn essential techniques such as creating shoring configurations (I-type and H-type), installing box and bucket patches, and applying various pipe patches (soft, Jubilee, Chain, and EWARP).
Additionally, the course emphasizes the significance of de-watering methods commonly used in the Maritime Industry. Trainees gain insight into the importance of efficiently removing floodwater from watertight compartments. Examples of de-watering equipment, including electrical submersible pumps and portable diesel-driven pumps, are showcased to enhance understanding and practical skills.
