SURVEY EXAMINES SEAFARER TRAINING IN NEW TECHNOLOGIES

SURVEY EXAMINES SEAFARER TRAINING IN NEW TECHNOLOGIES

Monday, February 22, 2021 

The Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) has teamed up with Aurora Digital Solutions to create an E-Learning and Immersive Learning in Seafarer Training survey.

The MNTB plays a pivotal role in developing the seafarers of the future and as part of the ongoing effort to modernise and future proof seafarer training and education, the MNTB are conducting an industry wide investigation into the adoption of emerging technologies. The MNTB and Aurora Digital Solutions are looking for as many people as possible to take part in the short survey.

MNTB Project Manager Lauren Bishopp said: “Contributions to this short survey will be invaluable as part of our research into E-Learning and Immersive Training in the maritime training sector. It will also enable us to better understand how our industry partners are using these technologies and how they feel about the future opportunities these technologies present to advance seafarer training.  It’s vital that we, as an industry, constantly evaluate new opportunities that present themselves, especially with regard to improving training and ultimately safety on board. There’s also a chance to win an Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset.”

Aurora Digital Solutions is part of the Northern Marine Group and specialises in Maritime Asset Management Systems, Virtual and Augmented Reality and business digitalisation solutions.
