Keeping ships moving with digital courses and certification

The pandemic has had a significant impact on classroom-based training and has seen e-learning playing a far larger part in the training schedules of seafarers. With many attended courses suspended, training centres working with reduced capacity and travel restrictions making the logistics of face-to-face training more complex and costly, distance learning is now being utilised more and more.

The wide range of distance learning courses Ocean Technologies Group offers has enabled our customers to continue to train and develop their seafarers, ensure their ongoing safety, and the smooth running of their maritime fleet.

Fast, flexible and robust

Our ability to rapidly deliver high volumes of courses on a broad range of topics, which can be completed at a speed that suits the learner, makes our courses a preferred solution for companies of all sizes. Whether you need to train five or 5000 candidates, we have the capacity to get your people enrolled and learning within the day.

The team have been known to turn around a course and certification within 24 hours.

Assured quality

Our Flag approved courses pass through the same rigorous evaluations and audits as equivalent classroom-based courses resulting in approvals of the same standing. With approvals from the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency and the Norwegian Maritime Authority, our courses meet some of the highest standards set in the industry and are recognised worldwide.

Role-specific courses

The need to rapidly train and certificate a seafarer whilst they are aboard may not be a daily occurrence, but when the need arises, our customers have a solution that can deliver.

For example, where a deck officer has been promoted as a result of a medical repatriation, we have delivered and issued certification remotely for safety officer training at short notice so they can fulfil their new role onboard and be ready for the next port call.

Our role-specific courses can be completed aboard, assessed, and certificated with minimal time delay, ensuring that the seafarer can quickly acquire the knowledge and paperwork they need to allow the vessel to continue to operate.

Equipment specific courses

Equipment based courses are amongst the most popular titles we offer. A seafarer joining a company or vessel for the first time, even as an experienced and competent mariner, may not have the knowledge to use the equipment type installed on the vessel they are joining.

We offer equipment-specific training and courses from a broad range of manufacturers, making it far easier for companies to ensure their personnel are thoroughly familiar with, and can competently operate, the equipment aboard the vessel they are on or will join.

Our range of type-specific ECDIS courses are often the most demanded category of equipment certification we provide, enabling seafarers to get quickly certificated prior to joining a new vessel.

Vessel specific courses

Vessel specific training and certification for personnel moving within the same company, for example from an oil tanker to a chemical or gas tankers, is a surprisingly common need. As the demand for experienced seafarers in these markets continues to outstrip supply, the ability to move personnel between vessel types more easily is becoming increasingly valuable.

Our courses and training on LNG, chemical and oil tanker operations provide our customers with the flexibility to move their crew to new vessel types more efficiently, while ensuring that the seafarers arrive with the level of knowledge and certification they need to meet regulatory requirements.
