MarinePALS e-Learning system certified by ClassNK

Maritime e-Learning company MarinePALS, headed up by long-time former Anglo-Eastern Director of QA and Training Capt Pradeep Chawla, has been granted an Innovation Endorsement for Products & Solutions from ClassNK for its Digital Learning Management System (Ver.2).

The Digital Learning Management System is a collection of micro-learning training videos, educational gaming apps and virtual reality programs, backed by online mentoring, which are available in short modules created to provide manageable tutorials that fit into life at sea.

Users can access a library of interactive training content complemented by access to company manuals, briefings, and circulars. The offering also includes a Competency Management system, and a recruitment assessment databank of questions that are continuously updated.

“We are extremely proud to be the first company in the maritime and training segment to achieve this certification from ClassNK,” said Capt Chawla.

“We set out to create a library of training content which is fun and engaging, giving users a more relaxed approach to education but which still delivers high quality learning that translates into the reduced accidents and losses and prevention of PSC, SIRE and Rightship deficiencies.”

“By focusing on micro-learning, gaming and virtual reality, we are providing content which is more engaging and appreciated by seafarers.”

In granting its Innovation Endorsement, ClassNK conducted tests to verify the functions of the platform to confirm that the technology performs as described before issuing a certificate.
