The two books ‘Passage Planning Practice’ and ‘Passage Planning Principles’ both by Abdul Khalique and Capt. Nadeem Anwar, together provide a comprehensive, easy to follow guide and an excellent set of standards to be worked through. By providing check-lists and a fully worked example, the authors have created a guide that builds upon the sound principles of passage planning, that can be used in a real-life situation, providing a much needed ‘job based’ training aid.

Captain Nadeem Anwar graduated from the Pakistan Marine Academy in December 1983 and in 1984, went into shipping as a deck cadet on multi-purpose ships. In 1990, he started working on oil tankers and OBO’s. In 1994, he returned to Fleetwood and acquired a Chief Mates Certificate of Competency. He was promoted to Chief Officer in 1994 and continued to serve on VLCC, OBO, O/O, Gas and Chemical Tankers. He achieved his Master Certificate of Competency from MCA UK in early 1998 and went back to sea in command of VLCCs. His time at sea was mainly spent in deep-sea trade, which gave him a wide-ranging experience of navigating in different areas of the world.

In October 1998, he joined the Fleetwood Nautical Campus as a lecturer. In 2003, he became its Curriculum Manager. In 2005, he achieved a MSc in Maritime Operations with a Distinction (through LJMU) and an Advanced diploma in Insurance (through the Chartered Insurance Institute).

Captain Anwar has developed training courses and written a range of training materials. He also provides consultancy services to marine training providers and shipping companies.
