GMDSS is an international system, developed by IMO for the purpose of saving lives. The Institut maritime du Québec (IMQ) offers recognized training to train navigation officers in the use of the GMDSS. The design of the simulator proposed by Innovation maritime provided the necessary flexibility to allow the addition of new components and the integration of scenarios generating reaction chains to put the student in a stressful situation, and develop skills related to crisis management. The GMDSS has been recently updated and the New Brunswick Community College has also acquired it for its training.
