Team Building with a Difference! 15% Discount for members.
Effective teamwork is at the heart of every successful operation.

Effective teamwork is at the heart of every successful operation. Every individual contributes to the success – or failure – of their team, so it’s vital for all members to work together as a single efficient unit.

GTSS offers Team Building courses featuring group exercises using the National Maritime College of Ireland’s (NMCI) environmental pool, damage repair unit and 360° bridge simulator to test and develop participants’ cooperation and problem-solving skills in a variety of outdoor and indoor scenarios.

A typical Team Building day might involve all the virtual thrills and spills of a navigational race around Governors Island in New York Harbour, as experienced in one of the College’s cutting-edge bridge simulators. It could challenge participants with a repair exercise in a rapidly flooding chamber in the Damage Repair Instructional Unit (DRIU). Or it might test them to the maximum with a range of foul weather sea survival exercises in the environmental pool.

Environmental Pool

The sea survival pool simulates conditions at sea (wind, rain, thunder, lightning, heavy swell, etc.) to give the ideal environment to build your team under trying circumstances. The intensity of the conditions may be adjusted to suit each group.

Damage Repair Instructional Unit - A unique team building experience

The NMCI’s Damage Repair Instructional Unit (DRIU) sinking ship simulator may be hired for a ‘one of a kind’ team building experience for up to 12 people.

It is the ideal setting for team training that encourages quick thinking, rapid response and high levels of communication and teamwork, offering a unique hands-on learning experience for your team.

Team cohesion, communication and clear-headedness is tested as cold water floods in from multiple breaches of the ship’s hull in a highly realistic scenario for all participants.

‘Class A’ Full Mission Bridge Simulators
Simulation affords the opportunity to bond team members in a virtual environment on board a computer-generated craft with all the characteristics of a real ship.
GTSS offer a range of different Team Building exercises and can tailor courses to the specific needs of individual clients. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help build and strengthen your team.
