Develop your visualisation skill as a seafarer and improve your ability to imagine how something will look after it is moved from its place. This course represents 1 of 5 cognitive skill courses in the complete Cognitive Skills for Seafarers Training Package. 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. Visualisation is the ability to imagine how something will look after it is moved from its place or when its parts are rearranged. It includes the ability to perceive and understand the spatial relations among objects in the environment, perform complex mental manipulation of objects (e.g., folding, rotation or movement), and understand representations of multidimensional figures in one-dimensional displays. 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.
