Stream Marine Training (SMT) and Intelligent Seas Group (ISG) are joining forces to offer STCW and Flag State approved eLearning courses, accessible anywhere in the world.
SMT provides STCW short courses and is based at a campus in Glasgow Airport. Its instructors come from a range of maritime and military backgrounds, including Merchant Navy, Royal Navy, Royal Fleet Auxiliary, and the British Army.
The company holds practical courses onsite and webinar courses online. This will be expanded in partnership with ISG to add eLearning courses to the portfolio, which can be completed at a time that suits the individual.
The courses are approved by the STCW and other relevant organising bodies and can be customised as required.
“This collaboration will allow seafarers to advance their skills with the use of up-to-date technology which is interactive and interesting,” said Group Operations Director at SMT, Katy Womersley.
“Through training online, in their own time, seafarers and shipping companies will be able to mitigate travel and accommodation costs and focus on developing their skills in a comfortable environment.”
