Last month we were happy to host a Hybrid Town Hall meeting with all our staff working in 3 different continents. We are lucky to have an inclusive team of experts with over 10 different nationalities, working around the world to create the best learning experience. Our Masters in Education, Masters of all Ships, UX designers, content writers, instructors and experts, are creating a learning eco-system, with the use of different technologies. Together with our clients and partners, we try to make the learning experience better every day. Training is not something we do aside, but is our core business!

In this newsletter one of our learning experts, Mr. Antonio Russo, will provide some insights how technology can help with maritime training and how to implement a proper blended learning experience. Blended learning, or hybrid learning, requires a different role form the instructor and the different teaching methods need to be aligned. In our philosophy technology changes the way of learning; however the participant remains central. Learning is not about technology providers, but is a process that leads to change as a result of experience and required to improve the overall performance.

One of the most valuable learning experiences are team trainings! When you spend time with your colleagues and train different scenarios on a full mission simulator, with a briefing and debriefing lead by an industry expert, without being interrupted by daily activities. This is the feedback we receive every week and, in this newsletter, we highlight an example case of Vroon Offshore. The Offshore & Renewable industry requires specific competences in a complex environment.

In the coming weeks, we will attend different events and trade shows to discuss with you about training and competency management:

  • METSTRADE in Amsterdam : November 15 – 17 | Superyacht Pavilion booth 09.307
  • Crew Connect Global in Manilla : November 22-27
  • Smart Shipping Event in H.I. Ambacht : December 1

If you would like to meet one of our team members during these events feel free to contact us and we will make ourselves available. Feel free to contact us via or give us a call.

Stay safe and we are looking forward to see you soon!
