Latest additions to the Ocean Learning Library
Training library updates Q2 2023
As usual our Ocean Learning team have been keeping a close watch on Industry developments to identify new topics and ensuring existing titles on our library are up to date all with the aim of making sure your training needs are covered.
In the most recent update to the Ocean Learning Library, there is important new material mapped to Rightship requirements for HAZMAT (IMSBC) and Mental Health, new titles on medical first aid and medical care and comprehensive new course for LNG mapped to the SIGTTO competency guidelines.
This update also includes 32 new hospitality titles for our Cruise customers, the first collection to come from our partnership with Lobster Ink.
We have also issued new versions of 20 of our existing titles into our new micro-learning format and added Chinese language translations to our five SIRE training titles to provide learner support on this important subject.
This release also gives you new opportunities to gain certification for your crews remotely without the logistics and costs of arranging travel and hotels.
Help with Rightship Inspections
Rightship provides safety and environmental assessments for vessels, helping shipping companies evaluate risks, ensure compliance, and promote sustainable practices. We have released major revisions to our HAZMAT (IMSBC) and Mental Health titles to support Rightship Requirements and help you demonstrate your commitment to excellence.
We have also mapped other titles in our library to Rightship RISQ questionaire to help underpin your efforts to fulfil their requirements.
Please see here for more details.
Comprehensive aid to SIGTTO competency
SIGTTO (Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators), has developed competency guidelines for personnel working in the liquefied gas shipping industry. These guidelines outline the required competencies and skills for various roles involved in the transportation and handling of liquefied gas cargoes. Our new interactive training course contains 113 modules comprised of 330 micro-learning units that map directly to these proficiencies giving you valuable e-learning resources to build tanker competency across 7 subject areas.
