CMA Shipping has a tradition of bringing the international shipping community together, and so Videotel Marine International is delighted to use Shipping 2012 as the platform to announce that The United States Coast Guard (USCG) in Yorktown, Virginia, which trains Port State Control Officers, has taken delivery of three Videotel on Demand (VOD) units.

The units are pre-loaded with top quality marine safety and operational training videos, computer-based training materials (CBT) and instructional courses. Comprehensive and interactive, the training material will be used by the USCG to augment existing Port State Control Office training.

“We are delighted to be supporting the USCG’s efforts,” said Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel. “Towards the end of last year we worked with the US Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection agency to develop a training programme which offered a new and updated approach to US Port State Control. We welcome the opportunity to once again contribute to the training needs within this complex and important environment.”

Videotel is the world’s leading multi-media producer of high quality maritime safety training software and materials serving the international maritime community today. As well as its award-winning videos, programmes and courses on board over 10,000 vessels, Videotel has the largest portfolio of maritime CBT materials in the world.
