Greek shipowners boost safety and crew competence using SQLearn’s e-learning services. Kyklades Maritime Corp and Modion Maritime Management are the latest Greek shipowners to adopt e-learning to enhance their seafarers’ abilities to successfully manage stressful challenges and make effective decisions.
These ship operators have both contracted SQLearn to provide e-learning programs on board their tankers and dry cargo ships. They will install Dolphin platform hardware on their vessels to access a growing suite of e-learning courses and in shore offices to enable managers to monitor the training process across the fleet in real-time.
SQLearn’s Dolphin library consists of remote learning courses based on IMO’s STCW (Standards for Training, Crewing and Watchkeeping) topics and to meet national, international and flag requirements.
Kyklades Maritime is deploying Dolphin hardware on its fleet of 19 vessels, including VLCC, Suezmax and Aframax crude tankers and LR2 product tankers. Kyklades Maritime chief executive Dimitris Patrikios says competent and effective seafarers are essential for operating its tanker fleet.
“Our company is focused on operating modern and efficient vessels with the most sophisticated and comprehensive management systems available,” says Mr. Patrikios.
“We have at the core of our activities well-trained crew and safe operations,” he continues. “Therefore, we believe our co-operation with SQLearn will meet the high standards we set for providing our crew with specialised and complete training through innovative e-learning courses.”
Modion Maritime Management is installing SQLearn Dolphin platform to provide e-learning services for its operating fleet of nine dry bulk carriers. Modion Maritime operations manager Stergios Nikolaidis says SQLearn enables the operator to train onboard and ashore personnel and manage their training activities.
“We have been on a mission to put safety and human protection at the centre of our operations,” he says. “Effective training is the key to achieving exceptional performance.”
