Developing a ship’s most critical asset – its people
Maritime training anytime – anywhere
We understand the unique challenges facing the maritime industry today. That’s why our learning technologies are designed to help you deliver on the things that matter most: safety, compliance, people management and cost efficiencies.
Our anytime, anywhere learning technologies enable you to:
- Operate safely
- Meet and exceed compliance targets
- Get on top of your personnel management challenges
- Develop and retain your talent
- Prove your excellence in internal and external audits, including port and Flag State Inspection
- Drive cost-efficiencies and reduce the need to travel
On-board, on-shore, online and on the move.
By bringing together Seagull and Videotel, we have combined the two most proven and respected names in maritime e-learning, assessment and competency management, an unrivalled team with a deep understanding of the needs of ship operators today.
Why investing in training works
It’s estimated that human error is responsible for up to 96% of all maritime accidents. That’s not including the near misses that often go unreported
A shortage of good candidates, rapid promotions, inconsistency in standards, and the need for people to constantly adapt to new technologies all contribute to a culture where mistakes are easily made – and can have catastrophic effects.
- Makes a ship safer by reducing human error – helping to save lives, prevent injuries, and avoid damage to property and the environment.
- Drives cost-efficiencies by reducing time lost to accidents, incidents or errors
- Creates a more productive ship by helping people get better at what they do and willing to embrace new technologies and responsibilities
“ Human error has long been regarded as a major cause of incidents in the shipping sector. It is estimated that between 75% to 96% of marine accidents can be attributed to human error.”
