The simulator based training are used widely in both industry and school education to reduce the accidents nowadays. This study aims to suggest the improved training methods to increase the effectiveness of engine room simulator training. The effectiveness of training in engine room will be performance indicators and the self-evaluation by participants. In the first phase of observation, the aim is to find out the possible shortcomings of current training methods based on training theories, to evaluate students' performance and knowledge level by their self-evaluation, and to observe performance indicators. After the observations, three changes were proposed and implemented. The new training methods will be tested in the second phase of observations, effectiveness of training and the factors which influence training outcome will also be found out. The Result shows participants have more improvement in the second phase, but it is difficult to identify which factor leads to the result. The possible factors could be the commitment with the instructor, the changes in e-coach messages (training method), repetition of training, and the aware of being observed.
