Commenting on his appointment, Manish Singh said, “Through my career, I have been a user, a client and a peer of Seagull and Videotel. I regard these businesses as being uniquely placed to partner with our clients, maritime administrations and the Organisation, to keep our seafarers, our ships and our seas safe. Users of Seagull and Videotel have relied on us as a benchmark for demonstrating proficiency development, competence management, reflective learning and on-board training.

Seagull and Videotel provide e-learning content on a diverse range of safety and operational aspects of ship operations, delivered through their proprietary Learning Management Systems (LMS). Clients are also able to set learning profiles in the proprietary Competence Management System (CMS) and set expected proficiencies for individual ranks. This forms the basis of screening and selection prior to engagement of personnel and subsequently, as part of their learning and development as well as career development tool, by specifying proficiencies that individual users need to demonstrate in-role and prior to promotions.
