This office and training center opened its doors in 2015. Our main trainer Tom McCasland has several decades of technical as well as operational training experience.
Whenever a ship gets equipped with new devices, it’s essential for crew members to learn the specifics of these devices. We often hear even the most experienced captains and navigational officers say they benefit from this type of training, as differences between brands, products and software cause every device to work differently. Our certified instructors offer you the latest tips and tricks on how to use our equipment that are often difficult to grasp with manuals only. Operational training can either take place (worldwide) aboard your ship or in one of our classrooms. This type of training is available to anyone who is interested.
We believe technical training is a continuous process which partly happens in the field but also needs to be facilitated by a certified instructor. It’s not without a reason that technicians and engineers are legally required to obtain a certificate to work on certain pieces of equipment. We make sure the necessary equipment is available in our classrooms so that every training is a combination of both theory and practice. Our instructors not only keep a close eye on product- and software updates but also include the latest regulations in their trainings. This type of training is only for distributors.
