This program familiarises ships' officers with the various requirements of the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) that need to be complied with to ensure a safe and speedy transit.

While transit through the Panama Canal is not difficult, there are a considerable number of requirements specified by the ACP with which the ship has to comply. Any omissions or errors in meeting these requirements could result in the ship's transit being significantly delayed. In such cases, the cumulative costs of additional sailing time and lost berths at subsequent destinations can be severe, regardless of any additional charges due to the ACP.
