Training Delivery

Videotel provides a comprehensive training solutions package for seafarers and shipping companies using the very best and most accessible learning programmes and management systems.

All our training material is developed in conjunction with experts making the learning process as relevant and effective as possible.

We include informative video, dynamic animated content and a substantial range of test assessment questions to really inspire seafarers to learn and retain knowledge. Our training is not easy – it’s not just a ‘tickbox’ exercise – we are focused on delivering improvement, by identifying weaknesses and developing talent in your organisation.

We also supply a complete suite of training management software to assist the scheduling and record keeping of crew training events, which helps you to meet compliance targets and deliver continuous professional development programmes (CPD) in the maritime industry.

Our suite of e-Learning materials are provided as training libraries onboard ship and online.

Offline options can also be provided where connectivity is not possible. Contact us for more information.
