OTG and Navguide partner on vessel inspection e-Learning programmes

Maritime e-learning firm Ocean Technologies Group (OTG) has entered into a partnership with Navguide Solutions, a specialist in vessel inspection performance, to introduce a range of e-learning programmes to help prepare crew for inspections.

Navguide has created ten programmes comprising of over 200 microlearning resources to help operators improve inspection performance and standards of competence. These resources will be available through the Ocean Learning Platform alongside existing related content.

The training materials include gamified simulations that guide crew through inspection interview scenarios, alongside more traditional study aids, all of which are intended to help seafarers consider the most helpful responses to inspectors’ questions.

“We, at Navguide, are thrilled and excited to team up with OTG, the largest maritime training provider in the world. They share our vision of empowering everyone on board with necessary on-job skills through interesting tools that are engaging to the modern seafarer,” said Captain Debashis Basu, Managing Partner, Navguide Solutions.

“Through this collaboration, we can assist vessel operators in improving inspection results in Port State control, SIRE, Rightship and other audits and inspections.”

“We aim to empower every seafarer with the vision that helps them pick up non-compliances as they go along, enhancing efficiency, professionalism and confidence in their workplace.”
