1st Acrredited IMO Interactive E-Course Provider
The e-course teaching method uses an interactive, real-time video conference platform that allows a plethora of qualified and highly experienced instructors from around the world to deliver modules straight to your location. This method also significantly reduces the overall cost of training.
Extensive experience in the logistical planning of training courses has shown that allocating time and bringing together trainees and trainers can become very challenging. This, in combination with the required duration of the IMO OPRC courses, is a considerable factor that can prevent participants (i.e. vessel crews, HSSEQ personnel from high risk facilities, executive managers, etc.) from attending courses.
The interactive e-courses have been developed to address this issue with the guidance and recommendations of an IMO advisory Group and UK’s Nautical Institute, under UK’s Nautical Institute scheme. The e-course, interactive video platform is designed for direct discourse and discussion between trainers and participants, allowing participants to receive course modules from their office or remote location, safety/critical personnel to remain on-site. This structure significantly reduces the time and costs associated with traveling.
