Ship manager Wallem Group reports that it has agreed a contract to implement a cloud-based simulation system from ARI Simulation to widen accessibility to training for its 7,000 seafarers.
The cloud infrastructure will provide a single simulation environment with access to a range of training modules, including navigation, machinery operations and liquid cargo handling, among others.
“A safe navigational mentality and awareness start from having the complete picture in training. We selected ARI Simulation for its future-proof and innovative technology, analytics, and the possibility to evaluate individual competence in both technical and behavioural criteria,” said Frank Coles, Wallem Group CEO.
“Another important reason for choosing ARI is that it is based in India; in these times of travel restrictions due to COVID, we can also utilise local support for physical training.”
“Technology will play an ever more prominent role in helping maintain and continually develop the competency of ships’ crews. Only when training and processes are fully adapted to the technology is the full benefit of technology achieved.”
