1 Chabahar Maritime University, Chabahar, Iran
ABSTRACT: Chabahar Maritime University has started radar/ARPA simulator training course since 2004 and the training has been carried out fully comply with STCW95 Convention and the IMO model course. According to the improvement in navigational technology, the reducion of Navigational Aids as two credits of the latest BSc sylabus for future officers on board ships will be discussed through this article in depth. In addition to the above, the author attempts to describe the AIS (Auomatic Identification System) which is defined by IMO and has been adopted by the latest revision of SOLAS chapter V. In fact, the AIS is part of ship's radio station and is surveyed together with radio installation. The AIS training is going to be taken place from next semester at Chabahar Maritime University in order to improve the skill of the trainees in order to rely the information provided by AIS.
