Customised Training Courses

Customised Training Courses

From naval architecture standards to how to conduct requirements management, we can tailor our knowledge and provide customised training to meet customer needs

Customised Training Courses

We can create customised training courses that can be delivered on-site or via the internet. These are just some of the courses and topics which we’ve provided so far, and we can tailor topics to address any customer’s particular situation.

Naval Architecture Course

We developed a course to provide Fleet Maintenance Facility (FMF) Cape Breton (CB) naval architects with introductory-level training and associated materials on submarine naval architecture. The course was customized for the engineering department who had appropriate qualifications and experience when dealing with surface ships, and an understanding of submarine design qualifications and naval architecture. The specialised training we provided covered some of the following topics:

  • Submarine structures
  • Stability
  • Trim
  • Compensating arrangements
  • Ballasting
  • Stability trials

Combat Systems Engineering Course

We developed and delivered basic training and overview materials for the Royal Canadian Navy's engineering and naval architecture team. The objective of the three-day course was to provide an understanding of the basic principles and considerations associated with naval combat systems and their major subsystems.  The course covered:

  • An understanding of Royal Canadian Navy's operational structure, missions and environments
  • The role of Royal Canadian Navy ships therein, and the impact on combat system design
  • The broader areas of general combat systems
  • Combat system selection and placement
  • Integration of combat systems
  • Ship design impacts
  • Cost estimation

Configuration and Data Managements Course

Thanks to a to higher rate of change and an increased need to support in-service vehicles and extend service life, demand for configuration and data management (CDM) has grown. This course covers the major functional areas of CDM while focusing on change control, both in the design cycle and as support for lifecycle material maintenance.  Topics include:

  • CDM planning and training
  • Configuration identification and baselining
  • Problem/issue capture and the technical resolution process
  • Change control processes, the change control board and a discussion of supporting tools
  • The document management process and collaboration tools (special attention is given to the new online tools available and cloud-based initiatives)
  • Configuration status accounting, including a discussion of useful technical and managerial metrics
  • Configuration audits: including the purpose of an audit, its place in the project lifecycle, the contractual meaning and impact of auditing, the audit process and important subjects or items that must be audited


Requirements Managements Course

Requirements development and the management of those requirements is a subject that is currently of particular interest to industry.  Topics include:

  • Purpose and scope of requirements management
  • Requirement definition
  • Requirement specification – what is a “good” requirement
  • Requirement analysis
  • Requirement traceability
  • Requirement verification and validation
  • Requirement change management
  • Purpose and structure of a requirements management plan
