E-learning program introduced for MAC3 software

Maritime software company Navis has launched its new MACS3 E-Learning system for container vessels, a web-based program providing hands-on training on the MACS3 loading computer.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The E-Learning program was developed in collaboration with academics from the University of Applied Sciences Flensburg, Germany, and provides a story-based learning system, presenting tasks users may face during cargo operations.

The software also offers tutorials and exercises to improve competency and skill sets including cargo handling, cargo stowage, cargo lashing and dangerous goods and design. Once the training is complete users earn a ‘MACS3 Ready’ certification.

“A quality training program to immerse nautical officers is of upmost importance for ship owners and crewing agencies,” said Gerald Lange, MACS3 product manager, Navis.

“With MACS3 E-Learning, we have defined basic standards by which customers become qualified MACS3 users, providing valuable instruction on container vessel loading and stability concepts and offer a certification once the training is complete.”

Navis has also recently announced the launch of its new MACS3 Connected system, which connects its software to the Cloud to provide access to a wider range of data. This includes current and historical loading conditions, as well as ship data such as current departure conditions, load lists, dangerous goods and reefer information.

A Condition Viewer is included to enable shore-based monitoring of the current loading condition of the fleet, and a Dangerous Goods (DG) Check has been added to enable users to check proper stowage and segregation of dangerous goods against the vessel profile and DOC database, in combination with the MACS3 dangerous good segregation engine.{/mprestriction}
