As most shipping companies have stressed over some time , and which has been actualized because of the covid-19 pandemic, there is a great need for remote, distant and digital training. Maybe especially to meet company specific training needs that cannot be delivered anywhere.
Simsea has worked with this for some time and we are now happy to tell you that we have made significant progress in this field. We have established three approaches:
- At site learning: Based on specific competence needs with our customers we prepare a program of lectures and simulator demonstrations that we convey from our remote lecture theatre in Haugesund to each individual course participant at home or elsewhere. This require that each individual has access to PC or tablet with camera and microphone/headset and of cause good internet connection. We use a very user friendly video meeting system called Whereby for this purpose which allows eye contact and face to face dialogue between instructor and course participants. We prepare separate instructions to each participant to prepare them for this way of working. We shall also measure the learning outcome from such programs by an individual interactive test taken over internet. In the El Prop blog you will find an example of this approach. And of cause, we can run some of our standard training courses that are not dependent on simulator exercises this way as well.
- E-learning: Via our e-learning software we distribute computer based learning programs including text, pictures, voice and videos to individual the course participants’ computers or tablets. The learning programs are distributed to individual e-mail addresses. After having competed the learning program the course participants need to complete a test where the result is conveyed back to us. By this we get some assurance that the test is taken by the candidate and not by others. Please see an example of such learning program here http://simsea.no/simblog/?p=198
- Distant Simulator and blended learning: Together with our simulator supplier, Kongsberg Digital, we have now established solutions where we can run simulator training outside our hub in Haugesund, without traveling. A prerequisite is that we can link up to another K-Sim simulator at the actual site or another type of simulator when we use the local simulator exercises. We now run different types of simulator training and assessment in Manila, Rijeka, Gdynia and Riga and can combine this with e-learning or customized at sit learning.
