OTG AIMS TO DEMYSTIFY COMPETENCY MANAGEMENT

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 

Ocean Technologies Group (OTG) is putting the spotlight on competency management with a series of initiatives to help ship operators and owners choose the right options for their crews and fleets.

OTG’s learning brands have experience in both design and implementation of Competency Management Systems (CMS) and in developing industry recognised competency standards. OTG will be sharing the insights and experience of its in-house experts, partners and customers using social media posts, blogs, editorial and free workshops. It will be issuing a series of competency packs comprising specific proficiencies across key competency areas that can be used to help build and assess seafarer knowledge, skills and behaviours.

The main areas of focus will be how to successfully implement a CMS, highlighting the existing and new range of competency standards, analysing why behavioural competency is important and the HR benefits of competency management.

Raal Harris, Group Creative Director, OTG said: “Now that we have launched our new Ocean Learning Platform, we felt it was the right time to offer our experience to the industry and help demystify what can be a daunting topic for many ship operators. By offering our years of experience in the form of free blogs, articles and workshops, we will dispel many of the common myths and misnomers by providing the most compelling reasons why having a CMS onboard will reap real benefits in terms of assurance, crew development, compliance and performance. At Ocean Technologies Group we have a proven track record of helping world leading companies build up the knowledge and skills of their teams through our Competency Management System and can work with companies to implement a ready-made set of competencies or develop a bespoke system tailored to the needs of their business.”
