Videotel has launched a new crisis management e-learning course, developed in cooperation with the IMO, Royal Caribbean, and Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).

The Crisis Management & Human Behaviour Training Course was produced in response to the 2010 Manila Amendments to the STCW Code, and is the first to be formally approved by the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) for worldwide use, according to Videotel.

It focuses on the main factors that need to be considered when dealing with a crisis on board, such as assessing the crisis and the resources available to deal with it, controlling and communicating with passengers, and coping with stress.

The course comprises an estimated 4.5 hours of Computer Based Training (CBT), with multiple choice on-screen tests for each module, plus a longer final test at the end.

“The Manila Amendments to the STCW Convention places crew and passenger safety in the event of an emergency situation at the top of the agenda,” said Nigel Cleave, Videotel CEO.

“It is essential that all those having such responsibility onboard ships are fully aware of the international rules and regulations and trained accordingly.”

“Videotel will be actively supporting this year the decision by the IMO to select ‘Maritime Education and Training’ as its World Maritime Day theme and as such, we are delighted to start 2015 with this prestigious approval by the MCA in recognition of the rigorous safety training process engendered by this course.”
