STAR Center has implemented a simple dress code: we require all students in class to wear a collared shirt (e.g. golf shirt) and closed-toe shoes (no flip-flops). Some classes have specific dress requirements that will be advised on registration
Cell Phone Use
Cell phone use at sea underway has been identified as a contributing factor to several "distracted operator" incidents in the past few years and best practice has been promulgated to preclude their use while on watch. In order to practice the correct behavior in the training environment, STAR Center has adopted the policy that all cell phones shall be turned off – not just put on vibrate – while in class and during simulator exercises (unless the exercise specifically requires their use). With at least one break per hour planned into almost every course, there is sufficient opportunity to keep up with communications, just not in the formal class environment.
