Training as a key pillar to the operation of safe and efficient ships

Catch the latest episode of The Learning Curve for fascinating insights into the diverse training needed to crew large cargo ships. Devesh Gautam, L&D Superintendent at the OSM Thome Group, takes Kenny on a voyage through what we can learn from the safety and cross-functional training required for life at sea.  


In the maritime industry, safety training is of utmost importance. It covers a wide range of topics, including fire-fighting, medical assistance, and basic survival skills. All crew members, regardless of their role, are required to undergo mandatory training and obtain a certificate of competency, setting standards for all countries. Navigating the seas of knowledge is complex. We discover how virtual reality (VR) training simulates incidents on a ship. Microlearning helps crew members.  


The unique and mandatory training requirements in the international shipping industry offer many lessons for enterprise learning more widely. Don’t miss this episode!
