WMT manuals provide a one-stop source for ship technical information and operating procedures in a user friendly format, highly valued by ship staff.

Our high quality manuals are an essential tool for officers, cadets and ratings – whether they are long serving members on board or have newly joined.

Shore based management also benefit from the manuals when it becomes necessary to communicate with the vessel when addressing system and equipment technical issues.

As part of our process we verify systems and equipment on board for accuracy, click here to find out more about our Systems Verification Surveys.
