Training, Mentoring and Assessment On Board

By MarEx 2014-09-22 16:20:00

Videotel, the leader in maritime e-Learning, has launched a new edition of its Training, Mentoring and Assessment On Board program which supports the IMO requirement for a standardization of training and assessment for all member state countries as part of the revised and updated STCW - the ‘Manila Amendments’.

Training, Mentoring and Assessment On Board covers the full range of revised competencies now required for certification as Deck Officers, Engineer Officers and the qualifications required for ratings.

Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel, explains: “Training is a vital element to progress within the industry. It is increasingly recognized that mentoring by experienced seafarers is an important part of training on board ship. Training, Mentoring and Assessment On Board highlights the main components of effective mentoring and demonstrates how to develop the skills to become a good mentor.”

The program is primarily aimed at trainees considering a career at sea, in addition to serving officers and ratings wanting to develop their careers. It also provides important information for those both on shore and on board ship involved in the provision, monitoring and assessment of the training program within a company.

A key element of the program is the Training Record Book (TRB), which not only serves as a comprehensive checklist for the trainee as well as the Designated Shipboard Training Officer (DSTO), but most importantly serves as proof of achievement for the respective national administration that eventually issues the certifications.

Training, Mentoring and Assessment On Board is available through Videotel On Demand (VOD), VOD Online, DVD and e-Learning CBT - all with accompanying workbook.
