Force Technology simulator platform gets DNV certification

Force Technology’s SimFlex Cloud navigation simulator platform has been granted DNV certification, approving the technology for use in training and examination in accordance with STCW Regulations and allowing training providers implementing the technology to be issued with a DNV SeaSkill Learning Programme Certificate

SimFlex Cloud is the latest system from Denmark-headquartered maritime simulator firm Force Technology, first introduced in October 2021 as a dedicated SaaS (Software as a Service) offering.

The DNV- ST-0033 Maritime Simulator Systems standard issued to the Force product is used to confirm that the service offers the relevant level of physical, behavioural and operational realism in accordance with recognised training and assessment objectives.

Certification also verifies the design and performance of the system’s integrated and mixed reality modes, which enable training organisations to provide Augmented Reality simulator courses to customers anywhere in the world.

“We’re delighted to receive DNV certification so soon after launching SimFlex Cloud as it ensures that our customers can migrate to such a beneficial platform with the confidence that STCW standards are being met,” said Jan Michelsen, Head of Department, Simulation, Ports & Training at Force Technology.

“Further, while providing a foundation for the development of competence development and assessment, SimFlex Cloud also offers new levels of flexibility for our customers to dynamically shape their training portfolios according to need.”
