Message from our CEO Marcel Kind

Hopefully most of you are enjoying the summer holidays sooner or later. Summer arrived and I am happy that most of you can travel again and enjoy a well-deserved holiday with family & friends. Quality time!

Some of our team members continue during the summer, with both onside training as well as online training. Also our software developers continue developing our Learning Management System / Competency Management System. This week we added a content management system, which makes it easy for course developers and clients to upload courses. Whether it’s a client specific course or a general course.

After the summer holiday we will publish more training among open courses for IGF training (Basic & Advanced), Polar Code, Train The Trainer, DP training etc.
In this newsletter you learn more about our accredited IGF code course and the new art collection in our centre of excellence. After the summer we will update you about our new team members, new online courses and assessments as well as our applied research team which is working on different courses.

Enjoy the summer and lets stay connected!

With kind regards,

Marcel Kind
CEO & Founder

Art showcase at Simwave

Every 3 years we give a talented artist the opportunity to showcase his or her art in our 5.200 m2 centre of excellence in The Netherlands. With this initiative we stimulate the art sector in The Netherlands and we hope to stimulate the creative sector.

For the next 3 years you will find art of Daniel Tavenier, born in 1964 and raised in the beautiful coastal town Katwijk aan Zee. He has a deep-rooted fascination and inspiration of the sea. His painting style varies from figurative to abstract. The visual style is contemporary, whilst painting
technique is sustainable and historic. Daniel is environmentally conscious and therefore makes his own paint with natural materials only.

For his exposition at Simwave he has carefully selected his finest works from his maritime
oeuvre in which the sea, coastline and fisheries fulfil a central theme. If you like to learn more about Daniel feel free to contact us.
