Marlow navigation signs agreement with ocean technologies group

PRESS RELEASE | December 6, 2021, Limassol, Cyprus

Marlow Navigation adopts the Ocean Learning Platform, providing a wider range of interactive maritime learning solutions, as well as new tools for competence management and crew assessment.

Maritime learning and operational technology company, Ocean Technologies Group (OTG) and Marlow Navigation have signed a new cooperation agreement.

This will see Marlow, one of the world’s leading ship and crew managers, with an active pool of 24,000 seafarers, transit from the Seagull computer-based training to the Ocean Learning Platform, providing a wider range of interactive maritime learning solutions, as well as introducing new tools for competence management and crew assessment. The system will build and schedule Marlow’s training matrix and provide advanced digital performance appraisals and reporting tools, assisting to evaluate results, identify specific needs and find continuous improvement.

Through the system, Marlow will also gain access to maker-specific training courses and cloud-based simulations. This includes a wealth of media-rich content, with over 800 blended learning titles on a range of subjects from the Ocean Learning Library and further extended by Marlow’s own specific training material.

“We are excited to strengthen the partnership between Ocean Technologies Group and Marlow Navigation and look forward to fully integrating their system to our crew training operations,” stated Training Director, Marlow Navigation, Joern Clodius.

“We have enjoyed successful cooperation with Seagull over many years and now that it is part of the OTG Group, the shift to the OTG platform offers an enhanced user experience, which will no doubt drive further crew engagement and adoption, and importantly, make the learning experience more fulfilling. Together with many other features and actionable insights, it will also help our company accelerate its potential in further developing and retaining talent, and to meet the challenges of shipping and crew training in the digital age,” added Clodius.

The learning system will be linked to Marlow’s crewing database, exchanging data securely and seamlessly, thereby reducing administration workload, as well as creating new digital possibilities for performance metrics and analyses.

Marlow’s comprehensive training activities are supported by its 120+ clients. This includes around 2,900 in-person crew upgrading courses per annum at dedicated, state-of-the-art training facilities, as well as preparing 360 cadets per year for their profession at sea. The OTG-Marlow solution forms an integral part of this training going forward, ensuring seafarers’ continuous qualification and skills development.

“We’re delighted that Marlow Navigation has decided to upgrade to the Ocean Learning Platform. We believe that it provides the broadest and most comprehensive range of maritime specific digital learning and assessment solutions available today and which will equip their seafarers with the knowledge and resources they need, not only online but also at Marlow’s training centres. We look forward to continuing and building on our longstanding cooperation with Marlow,” said Johan Gustafsson, Chief Revenue Officer at OTG.
