The CCM aims to manage competence data at every level, from junior ratings to Master or Chief Engineer, and provides a CPD (continuing professional development) life cycle which moves and progresses with those individuals.
Detailed crew training schedules and reports can be created as companies plan, train, assess, record and report all of their training activity.
The system has been in development for five years, and uses cloud-based technology to provide training and assessment through Videotel’s web-based Fleet Training Administrator (webFTA) portal.
"The challenge to the maritime industry is clear," said Nigel Cleave, Videotel CEO.
"The Manila Amendments coming into force are intended to make sure that the highest standards of seafarer competence are maintained globally. The old days of prescriptive learning are gone, replaced by competency based programmes, using continuous assessment against benchmarked standards."
"Videotel’s wide range of top quality training material delivered through Videotel on Demand (VOD) and our newly launched secure web-based VOD Online, delivers against that objective, ensuring safe, efficient and cost-effective operation on ships the world over."
