The above courses were developed for a VTS Center, where their Operators had marine diplomas and Supervisors with COCs, and with at least 1 years experience working in the VTS Centre. The courses were in English. The duration of the VTS courses that you may require would depend on the level of English (spoken and written); VTS experience if any; and the participant's background and educational qualification. Therefore, it is appropriate to tailor the VTS courses and the duration of each module according to your specific needs.
