Cognitive skills are the vehicle for your cognition, which refers to the various processes of your thinking daily. Cognitive skills are the skills your brain utilises to process stimuli. The more complex information processing is required on board, the greater the demand for seafarers with high cognitive skills.

Spatial Orientation is the ability to know where someone is in relation to their environment or to tell where a specific object is in relation to him/her. It includes the ability to handle information relating to where one is coming from, where one is at a specific moment, where one is heading to, etc. It requires having a good perception of the surroundings and comprehension of spatial arrangements.

This course allows you to showcase to your employers that you are being proactive and in line with the maritime industry's modern-day demands.
