Course Contents

The course contains 4 Sections, a set of Project Files, a Test and a Reference Library. The four Sections are:

  • Getting Organised
  • Think Safe, Be Safe
  • Safe Place to Work and Live
  • When Things Go Wrong

Each Section is divided into Modules relevant to the Section topic. They require the user to watch video clips, answer questions and enter text. Each Module takes about 30 minutes to complete and incorporates a Workbook for recording relevant information. At the end of each Module there is a quiz to test knowledge of the material within the Module. All except two Modules also have Project Files which require the user to apply the knowledge they have just acquired within the context of their ship's operations. There is a Test covering material from all Sections of the course and a Reference Library which lists other useful sources of information, such as relevant videos and helpful websites. For individuals or companies who require it, certification is also available and details of this process are contained within the CD or can be obtained from the Videotel website.
