SQLearn has announced it will provide an integrated e-Learning system to all 10 Merchant Marine Academies (MMA) in Greece free of charge for the next three years, as part of a cooperation with the Ministry of Shipping and Island Policy.

The first step of the project was taken on January 25 with the installation and presentation of the system at the Merchant Marine Academy in Chios in the presence of delegates from the Ministry of Shipping and Island Policy and from the Municipality of Chios. A second event took place on February 14 at the Merchant Marine Academy in Aspropyrgos, in the presence of the Minister of Shipping and Island Policy, Panagiotis Kouroumplis.

The eLearning platform aen.sqlearn.com designed by SQLearn, includes a Training Matrix plugin, as well as e-learning courses which SQLearn has developed in cooperation with Theta Marine Consulting, which provided the primary material.

The list of courses is constantly updated, covers international, national and flag requirements and includes topics in the fields of safety, technical subjects, incident reports (lessons learnt) among others.

SQLearn’s solutions for e-learning, the learning management system and the e-learning courses are certified by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

In the context of Corporate Social Responsibility and in order to emphasize the importance of training offered to remote regions of the country and to support their work, SQLearn started the system installations in Chios, and is moving on with the rest of the MMAs in Greece over the next months. A presentation at the Merchant Marine Academy in Kymi will follow on February 27.
