Seagull Maritime and Safebridge Offer ECDIS Training Portfolio

ADVERTISEMENT

Safebridge, a worldwide leading provider of Web-based E-Learning products for the maritime industry, providing online, onboard and classroom training for nautical officers and captains, has launched joint initiative with Seagull Maritime AS. Drawing on the strengths of each organisation, the partners will make E-learning expertise from Safebridge and the wide-ranging onboard training platform from Seagull available through a combined offer, benefiting seafarers worldwide.

Today, a wide variety of ECDIS solutions can be found onboard ships. Already, over 30 ECDIS models are in use in the commercial shipping, with a unique selling point claimed for each by way of competitive offering. With upgraded models coming to market from established manufacturers, and new producers stepping into this lucrative market, that number of permutations is only likely to increase.

To cope with the challenge of offering the required type-specific-training for all ECDIS models calls for highly specific input from marine experts, but also a sophisticated interactive teaching method for real hands-on familiarisation. Seagull Maritime AS and Safebridge GmbH have therefore combined to develop an overall portfolio that can also get the best out of each training approach.

Under the agreement, Seagull is entitled to add the complete Safebridge range of ECDIS training packages (presently 25+) to its well-known onboard Seagull Training System (STS), which is accessible via a laptop or desktop computer. The STS hosts the Seagull Training Administrator and the entire Onboard Library of E-learning modules available from Seagull Maritime AS.

“We feel more than privileged to team up also with such a reputable company like Seagull to complement our training delivery methods. This partnership will give us an additional impetus on spreading our courses to an even larger number of clients and make access to our training for existing Seagull customers even more comfortable. The integrated solution between Safebridge ECDIS training systems and Seagull Training

Administrator allows for the automatic transfer of training records between Seagull Course department and Safebridge whom issue the course certificate, which is a unique feature offering technical and performance advantages,” comments Managing Director Ulf Steden from Safebridge.

Roger Ringstad, Managing Director, Seagull Maritime, adds: “We are very pleased to be working together with Safebridge to offer our clients access to maker-specific ECDIS training utilizing the Safebridge ECDIS training platform. Seamlessly integrated with the Seagull Training Administrator, this offers a unique solution for the Navigators to perform ECDIS familiarisation training, both onboard with Seagull and online with Safebridge.”
