Norwegian e-Learning company Mintra has introduced a new digital course incorporating Kongsberg Digital’s cloud-based simulation technology, merging interactive assessment with practical skills development of through simulation.
The course is the result of a cross-disciplinary collaboration project between Mintra’s innovation team and Kongsberg’s Digital simulator experts to create a cloud-based learning system that enables seafarers to study both theoretical and practical skills at any location.
The courses will be provided on Mintra’s Trainingportal competency platform, specifically designed for safety-critical industries. Initial modules will focus on technical training for vessel engine room operations, with subsequent courses to look at areas such as cargo and navigation.
Learners will complete the digital modules on the platform and then transition to the simulator to undertake exercises that put their new knowledge into practice. Both the theoretical and practical components of the course need to be completed for seafarers to pass.
“We are passionate about delivering value and more impactful learning experiences to our customers,” said Siren Berge, CTO of Mintra.
“In collaboration with Kongsberg Digital, we have combined two industry-leading technologies to offer seafarers the next generation of immersive learning. Theoretical digital learning and assessment are now seamlessly integrated with the corresponding practical exercises on Trainingportal. One platform, one contract and with consolidated reporting.”
