Do You Offer e-Learning or Remote Training Programmes? - 31/03/2020


Government measures to limit the effects of the coronavirus are forcing many people to work from home. In addition, trade shows, conferences and other meetings have been postponed or cancelled. Various companies and institutions have therefore developed educational programmes and digital product presentations. For example, last week we reported on the Saildrone educational programme. E-learning modules can also be found on the website of KONGSBERG. Their remote training programme is delivered through established virtual classrooms and online training tools.

Virtual Learning Environment

The virtual learning environment allows remote students to learn using their own vessel’s software, assisted live by a qualified instructor. Many of KONGSBERG’s tried-and-tested classroom courses can be delivered in this way, using cloud-based virtual machines to provide each student with access to a Human-Machine Interface and to allow them to operate real dynamic positioning (K-Pos), automation (K-Chief 700) and navigation (K-Bridge) software from any location.

This ability to carry out practical tasks gives the participant hands-on experience as a basis for safe and sustainable operation. All that is required for students and instructors to take part is a PC or Mac, preferably with two monitors and a headset.
