Devonport Naval Base is equipped with a range of facilities that provide the unique training, engineering and safety services that are needed by a military organisation. These facilities include training simulators, a Dry Dock and the Sea Safety Training Squadron.
The RNZN uses virtual reality simulators to train personnel in key ship handling and engineering tasks. The simulators use a combination of realistic physical interiors and flat-panel displays to create a challenging training environment.
The historic Calliope Dry Dock is located on the Naval Base. Operation of the Dry Dock and engineering services are provided by Babcock Engineering.
The Navy operates a Sea Safety Training Squadron where all personnel are trained in firefighting, damage control and sea safety.
