This course is intended to provide aids to navigation managers and other interested parties with the theoretical and practical training necessary to have a satisfactory understanding of the three IALA risk management tools; IALA Waterway Risk Assessment Program (IWRAP Mk2); Port and Waterway Safety Assessment tool (PAWSA) and simulation.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will have acquired sufficient knowledge and skill to use IWRAP Mk2 within their organisations; organise a PAWSA workshop and recognise the use to which simulation techniques can be put in risk management and effective AtoN waterway design.

IWRAP is method for quantitively assessing the frequency of collisions and groundings in a given waterway and it is one of the elements of the IALA Risk Management Toolbox. The course will be held at Tokyo Denki University, Senju, Tokyo, Japan.
