«Electronics» subject includes theoretical and practical information about safety working with electrical equipment. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. The role of a worker in the machine department involves providing equipment support and requires a solid technical understanding of the equipment’s operation and components. It is important for them to be well-versed in the fundamental principles of each device’s function, as well as capable of diagnosing and resolving malfunctions. To effectively perform tasks related to servicing and repair, it is crucial for the employee to stay up-to-date with the latest updates and advancements in equipment technology. Additionally, having basic communication and collaboration skills is essential for interacting with team members and clients, particularly when providing assistance and consultations.
