We are delighted to announce that the Liberian Registry has signed an agreement with SQLearn to approve SQLearn’s library of e-learning courses and STCW e-courses for the maritime industry.
Amid the ongoing global pandemic, and lack of access to traditional education resources for many seafarers, SQLearn and the Liberian Registry are working together to bring innovative solutions and customized experiences to seafarers and shipowners to allow for the seafarers to continue to get the professional development and training necessary.
The library of SQLearn’s e-learning material is a complete solution of a learning and training system ensuring all trainees will receive the same high level of onboard training and familiarize themselves with the daily operations. The ability to take courses remotely at a convenient place and time is of vital importance in the current working and learning environment. In addition, e-courses largely reduce costs associated with travel, classrooms booking, release human resources and eliminate the need to gather trainees in a specific place.
In addition to the existing e-learning library, STCW e-courses are expected to be launched in April 2021.
The Liberian Registry believes that seafarers need to have easy access to the proper educational resources for developing their skills and qualifications, as well as shipowners need to keep their seafarers qualified and updated through efficient and convenient training and ensuring the quality of learning meets the highest expectations.
“SQLearn has brought once again a disruption in the field of maritime e-learning. We are dedicated to building a modern approach to maritime training and we work hard to keep this edge. The collaboration with the Liberian Registry is a result of our efforts to offer a complete training solution for the shipping industry and is a major success not only for SQLearn, but for Greece as well. It constitutes an innovation that will support the shipping industry and seafarers under the difficult conditions brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.” said SQLearn’s CEO, Mr. Spyridon Gkoumas.
