Shipping - Closing the competence gap with training
Skills gaps due to technology advances can be filled by simulators, e-learning, virtual reality and onboard mentoring
People are one of the most important assets in shipping and are under increasing pressure to adapt to technological and operational changes.
Which is why training using multiple technologies and applications is increasingly important to shipmanagers, says V.Group’s Marlins business development director Catherine Logie.
V.Group manages a fleet of 600 vessels with 3,000 shore-based staff spread throughout 60 offices in 30 countries. They work in tandem with a global crew pool of 44,000 seafarers.
