Seafarer Evaluation App launched by OneLearn Global

OneLearn Global has launched its Seafarer Evaluation App (SEA), a digital evaluation system to allow organisations to gather a range of information and evaluate seafarer competency from a centralised location.

SEA comprises two tools: CompetenSEA, used to evaluate the knowledge and competencies of seafarers, and define their suitability for a particular position; and FluenSEA, designed to evaluate seafarers’ maritime English skills.

Companies can use the system to generate reports that summarise candidates’ competencies, measure seafarers against industry standards, produce certificates for each seafarer, and customise the assessments.

“OneLearn Global’s Seafarer Evaluation App (SEA) gives forward-thinking managers a powerful tool to measure the competency of their workforce, and to ensure that seafarers have the knowledge and training to do their job. Skilled and knowledgeable seafarers are the future of the maritime industry,” said OneLearn Global CEO, Abhinava (Abhi) S. Narayana. “.”

CompetenSEA can also be used for pre-hiring decisions to shortlist candidates for a position, or for continuous training and development by regularly measuring competency levels of an individual, allowing organizations to identify and highlight strengths and weaknesses.

Each assessment draws on a pool of 6,000 questions covering various Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) knowledge areas to create a unique test relevant to a candidate’s type of vessel, department, and rank. While the system comes pre-packaged with questions, organisations can also add in any custom question banks and administer any assessments they wish.
