Ocean Learning Platform – latest additions and revisions

Training library updates Q3 2022

Our most recent update to the Ocean Learning Library covers everything from the fundamentals of seamanship to type-specific learning and safety-critical training. Featuring a combination of OTG-authored content and titles from new partners, this release adds strength and depth to the resources available through OLP.

Focuses for this update include:

Reducing cargo loss

The buoyant container market is seeing vessels operating at, or near, maximum capacity. This surge in demand is also reflected in the number of containers being lost.

You can read more about our collaboration with Navis here.

Improving safety

Flammable liquids, gases or materials and the potential for their ignition pose a significant risk to the lives of the crew and the safety of the ships. This update of the Ocean Learning Library includes four new courses from Trainor. These immersive titles help seafarers to identify and reduce the risks of working in or near EX-areas, helping improve safety onboard.

You can read more about our collaboration with Trainor here.

These titles can also be accessed through the Ocean web shop.

Understanding behavioural competency

It is widely understood that a ship’s safe, efficient operation relies heavily on the crew’s competence, which can be broken down into technical and non-technical skills. Whereas best practices for assessing technical (hard) skills are well understood, approaches to evaluating non-technical (soft) skills and ‘Behavioural Competence’ are still relatively new. This update of the Ocean Learning Library includes a new title designed to close that gap in understanding and provide assessors with a clear understanding of Behavioural Competence, why it was introduced, and how best to assess it.

This e-learning is an ideal companion to our e-BCAV competency content pack and is an excellent resource for anyone looking to understand behavioural competency better.

Building on fundamentals

Continuing our commitment to providing more choice and variation in OLP, this update to the Ocean Learning Library includes titles developed by Dahra Global Technologies and Consultancy Services, in response to the risk to safety posed by insufficient knowledge of seamanship or navigation when taking a ship to the sea or coming alongside. The 21 e-learning titles cover seamanship fundamentals, navigation, ship handling, COLREGS and communication.

Sharpening ECDIS skills

ECDIS is an essential tool for safe passage planning and execution, with each market system operating slightly differently. This update to the Ocean Learning Library includes an e-learning module from Chartworld on their eGlobe G2 ECDIS, providing crews with a valuable resource for sharpening their skills, and preparing for navigational audits and vettings through type-specific learning.

Bringing together the best of OTG

As part of our continuing work to combine elements from the Marlins, MTS, Seagull and Videotel content to provide you with the ‘best-of-all-worlds’, this release includes refreshed visuals for our Galley Operations and Hygiene title and the addition of Mandarin and French translations.
