ABS has launched a new eLearning training platform to provide global remote access to its catalogue of educational tools and professional training courses.
The new training system will provide on-demand courses to augment classroom training in the practice areas of Cyber Security, Risk Management, Asset Reliability, Compliance Management and Process Safety, the classification society says.
The first phase of e-courses focuses on Cyber Security, including Business Cyber Security courses and a Maritime Cyber Security course. Additional e-courses will focus on Reliability Management and Reliability Centred Maintenance.
In the future ABS aims to add further courses tailored to safety, risk and compliance management topics including Root Cause Analysis (RCA), Process Hazard Analysis (PHA), Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), Management of Change (MOC) and International and Offshore Oil and Gas Regulations and Standards.
“For decades ABS Group has provided world-class training services, administering the highest standards of education and consulting to thousands of professionals in the US and internationally,” said Michael Harrington, Director of ABS Group Training.
“These same award-winning subject matter experts who have been recognised for their contributions to multidisciplinary engineering fields are now sharing technical and regulatory expertise for training at your pace, anytime, anywhere.”
ABS notes that all e-course materials are introductory, with the option of customisation for advanced or industry specific training, and with supplementary public and private instructor-led classroom training available.
The new eLearning platform will also host a range of additional learning products, including books, reference materials and Root Cause Maps.
