Online course collaboration

(Posted on 16/03/19)

A successful collaboration between KVH Videotel, a world leader in the provision of e-learning for the maritime industry, and The Nautical Institute (NI), an international organization for maritime professionals involved in the control of sea-going ships, has resulted in more than 100 NI members enrolling in online courses to further their knowledge and skills.
 
The interactive courses cover a wide range of subjects from ECDIS training, cyber security, and Maritime Labour Convention for ship masters, to enclosed space entry and marine environmental awareness. Taking between 4 – 40 hours to complete, the courses are relevant for all career levels from cadet to Master and contribute to continuing professional development (CPD).
 
“I am thrilled by the uptake of these e-learning courses and their contribution to the lifelong learning of maritime professionals,” said Steven Gosling, quality assurance manager for KVH Videotel.
 
“It just shows how much NI members want to develop their knowledge and understanding of maritime subjects to enhance their maritime careers. The convenience of online access means NI members can learn at their own pace in an environment and time of their choosing.”   
 
Under this exclusive program, NI members receive one free online course per year. Since the courses were made available at the end of 2018, the most popular titles have been “Survey & examination of lifting appliances”, closely followed by ECDIS training.
 
The positive responses from NI members include this feedback about the ECDIS course: “The last time I experienced ECSs was in 2004 when ECDIS was in its infancy, so I started the course as a beginner. E-learning is now part and parcel of the whole learning experience and essential for pursuing CPD,” said Robert Knight, Bachelor of Science, Member of Nautical Institute. Another member provided this feedback: “The course was fit for purpose, informative, and very helpful. I would highly recommend KVH Videotel for online courses,” said Isaac Owolabi.
