KVH offers training videos

Posted on by in

Rhode Island-based KVH Industries introduced two safety and security videos at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to address the regulations facing this sector of the maritime industry.

Videotel, a maritime e-learning company owned by KVH, produced the training programs with a specific focus for superyacht captains, crew, owners, and ancillary personnel.

“Superyachts require fully certified crews for maritime operation and all those serving onboard must comply with regulations and be aware of their responsibilities,” explains Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel. “Our ‘Safety on Superyachts’ series covers essential topics to provide a comprehensive guide to safe operations on these unique and exciting, but often highly complex, vessels.”

The “Maritime Security Awareness” training course covers security issues that superyachts may encounter when alongside a dock or other vessel, at anchor, and at sea. Subject matter includes key threats, plans of action, and the importance of communication during a security threat. The course is presented as one overview program, and it enables superyacht crew of all levels to meet the minimum standard of competence in security awareness according to the STCW code updates that went into effect earlier this year.

Videotel’s training courses are available in many formats, including video and interactive e-learning programs. In addition, they are available via multicasting delivery through KVH’s content delivery solution.
