VASCO Supported Scenarios



Focused on ‘Train as you operate, and industry best practice’, our scenarios have been expertly designed to deliver real world skill development.
They are so much more than what is on offer in traditional training.

All of the VASCO designed scenarios will include assessment of BRM principles together with knowledge and application of colregs

Part A - General and Section I - conduct of vessels in any condition of visibility.

Each individual scenario will also focus on particular rules within Section II - Conduct of vessels in sight of one another and Section III - Conduct of vessels in restricted visibility.

Each scenario is dynamic and the instructor has the ability to adapt the preset conditions to take account of the actions of the team. This ensure the training is both interesting and challenging.
