As a true cloud-based provider of online training courses, we offer our courses through our hosted platform that can be customized and dedicated to your organizational needs. We offer onboard training through several pathways, such as, encrypted USBs that can be shared across your crew, or download encrypted content and host them on dedicated PCs or have them licensed across individual seafarer’s personal devices.

Our online and off-line courses are self-paced, accessible anytime, and eLearning lessons are delivered though an e-Book that includes training videos with animation and self-assessments, and the final course completion exams. Our enterprise licensing is based on a low-cost annual fee per ship for all competency-based training – all courses and all ship personnel. Can we meet you to discuss your training needs?
