The Nautical Institute launches e-learning for members

The Nautical Institute has made a set of new online skills training courses available free of charge to its members, developed in collaboration with KVH Videotel, with topics including risk assessment at sea, marine environmental awareness, ECDIS and crisis management.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The interactive courses, which take between 4 and 40 hours to complete, are relevant to all professional levels from cadet to Master, and aim to enhance knowledge and, ultimately, advance the careers of those mariners seeking to progress.

Each course addresses key regulations and provides an overview of the hazards, risks and control measures a mariner may encounter on duty. Nautical Institute members can access one standard level course of their choice free of charge every year.

“Individual commitment to personal development is a key characteristic of the true professional. I am thrilled to announce a brand new initiative that will make this both easier and cheaper for Nautical Institute members,” said John Lloyd, CEO of The Nautical Institute

On completion of the course candidates are invited to take an online test encompassing questions from all modules. The test result is delivered onscreen and may be recorded by the learner in their CPD file or other record of achievement.

Where an official certificate is required, the candidate is invited to have their work authenticated and submitted to KVH Videotel, for which a fee is payable.{/mprestriction}
