Introduction to Ocean Learning Platform

Free Seafarers Training Packages

Coronavirus- How to Beat It. Free Video Resource Now Available

In the wake of the pandemic COVID-19, Seagull Maritime and Videotel have launched a new programme called:
“Coronavirus- How to Beat it.”
Available free to the maritime industry, the programme outlines the common symptoms that seafarers need to be aware of and details the key precautions that individuals onboard can take to minimise the spread of this highly contagious virus

IMO 2020 Sulphur Regulations – Achieving Compliance

The Videotel training package consists of two components that help to make it easier for ships’ crews and owners / operators to do the right thing and be compliant with the new regulations.

Seafarers Mental
Health and Wellbeing

Seafarers face unique working conditions which can put them under a lot of stress, with fewer opportunities for relief than they would be likely to find on land.

Our Seafarers’ Mental Health and Wellbeing package focuses on the positive things seafarers can do to help themselves and their fellow crew members.

Title of the month


Shipboard Maintenance and Painting (Edition 2)

The ocean is a corrosive environment, constantly wearing down and damaging a ship’s protective barriers. Once a ship is in service, painting the surfaces helps to preserve the condition of the steel. Together with regular maintenance it will ultimately save money and conserve resources, while safeguarding people and property.

This training package is intended for all ship’s personnel who either paint, or are responsible for seafarers who paint steel decks and surfaces
