Marlow Navigation inks new eLearning deal with OTG

Marlow Navigation has signed a new agreement with Ocean Technologies Group (OTG) to provide a wider range of eLearning services for its active pool of 24,000 seafarers.

Marlow will transition from its Seagull computer-based training system (an OTG subsidiary) to the Ocean Learning Platform, opening up a variety of additional interactive maritime learning systems, as well as introducing new tools for competence management and crew assessment.

The system will build and schedule Marlow’s training matrix and provide digital performance appraisals and reporting tools, which can be used to evaluate results, identify specific needs and underpin continuous improvement. The ship manager will also gain access to maker-specific training courses and cloud-based simulation packages.

The learning system will be linked to Marlow’s crewing database to exchange relevant data and reduce administration workload, as well as creating new digital possibilities for performance metrics and analyses.

“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,” said Joern Clodius, Training Director, Marlow Navigation.

“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.”
