Online course by KVH Videotel and NI met with positive industry response

A collaboration between KVH Videotel and The Nautical Institute (NI) has resulted in more than 100 NI members enrolling in online courses to further their knowledge and skills across a range of topics including ECDIS, cybersecurity, the Maritime Labour Convention for ship masters, enclosed space entry and marine environmental awareness.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The online courses take between 4 and 40 hours to complete and are relevant for all career levels from cadet to Master and contribute to continuing professional development (CPD).

Feedback from respondents has been positive. Robert Knight, Bachelor of Science, member of Nautical Institute, said: “The last time I experienced ECSs was in 2004 when ECDIS was in its infancy, so I started the course as a beginner. E-learning is now part and parcel of the whole learning experience and essential for pursuing CPD.”

Another member, Isaac Owolabi, provided this feedback: “The course was fit for purpose, informative, and very helpful. I would highly recommend KVH Videotel for online courses.”

“I am thrilled by the uptake of these e-learning courses and their contribution to the lifelong learning of maritime professionals,” said Steven Gosling, quality assurance manager for KVH Videotel.

“It just shows how much NI members want to develop their knowledge and understanding of maritime subjects to enhance their maritime careers. The convenience of online access means NI members can learn at their own pace in an environment and time of their choosing.”  

NI members receive one free online course per year. In addition, NI members can also receive 25 per cent discount on any additional training course booked by March 31, 2019.

Since the courses were made available at the end of 2018, the most popular titles have been “Survey & examination of lifting appliances”, closely followed by ECDIS training.{/mprestriction}
