Videotel Expands Maritime Training Programs
Videotel, an international provider of e-Learning maritime training solutions and a company of KVH Industries, Inc., has launched its latest Videotel on Demand (VOD) release, which includes a total of 59 e-Learning courses – 37 new, 22 updated. Simultaneously, the new print edition of Videotel’s training catalog, STCW Maritime Training Catalog 2015-2017, has been released, detailing the complete Videotel selection of 950 new and updated titles available in a range of formats.
VOD is Videotel’s training system that allows mariners to learn onboard, onshore and online; it is available either as a stand-alone system or in a network version, allowing multiple users to train simultaneously on different e-Learning courses via the ship’s network. The service aims to help address the challenge of providing training for mariners, who spend extended periods of time at sea.
Highlighting Videotel’s portfolio of Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) training programs, the new printed catalogue serves as a reference for ship owners and managers dedicated to providing training for seafarers. Videotel’s computer-based training (CBT) programs are included, an area that boasts more than 500 e-Learning courses.
