Videotel’s new training catalogue

Videotel is marking its 40th anniversary by releasing its latest maritime training catalogue, which it says comprises more than 800 new and updated titles.

The London-based company offers a blend of video, computer-based training (CBT) and interactive courses, available in some 29 languages. It also provides tutor-led distance learning courses through the Videotel Academy’s virtual classroom.

All courses comply with IMO ISM STCW standards and are available on board using Videotel On Demand (VOD), as well as online and onshore via video, CBT, interactive CD and accompanying booklet formats.

Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel Marine International, says: “We began making training products for the marine industry back in 1973, at a time when major shipping companies needed to improve their onboard training and IMCO – the forerunner of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) – wanted to see high quality training materials supplied to maritime colleges, especially those in fast developing countries.”

“We were delighted to step in and fulfil the brief, having now achieved well over 100 million training hours to date.”

“We still hold true to those values today by carefully researching our programmes, filming on location onboard ships and selectively using animation as and when circumstances dictate (…) What’s more, we continually update our material as regulations and operational techniques change.”
