Shipping company Vroon has signed a fleetwide agreement with training provider Seagull Maritime, to implement a range of training systems across its fleet as well as for shore based personnel.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Vroon has always been committed to safe practices and ensuring a duty of care for the safety and health of all employees and customers,” said Vroon head of crewing, Diederic van Keulen.

“We believe our continued success depends on the abilities and dedication of our staff and how we nurture each individual. We have always shared information and promoted teamwork throughout our organisation. So, by focusing on training and personal development, we increase our position as the employer of choice within the industry.”

Seagull Maritime will deliver its systems to the Vroon fleet of approximately 100 vessels of various types, operated through seven management companies. The shipping company will have access to both ship specific training and generic training courses based on STCW requirements.

Crewing software integration via the Seagull Training Administrator (STA) will also be implemented, providing information for crewing and HR departments to track training progress and generate reports.

“Vroon has high demands for their training provider, and therefore we are extremely proud that Seagull is the provider of choice,” said Seagull managing director, Roger Ringstad.

“Vroon is one of the major shipping companies in Europe with a diverse fleet of approximately 100 vessels and very competent crew. Our large and always updated training library, flexible and integrated solutions for installation and operation is important for Vroon as well as our other customers. We are really looking forward to a long-term relationship with Vroon.”{/mprestriction}
