In collaboration with V.Ships Leisure, Marlins has developed two elearning courses to help prepare passenger ship crews to manage a crisis and meet the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) Section A-V/2 paragraphs 1,2 and 3.
The courses – Crisis Management and Human Behaviour and Crowd Management – are approved by the UK MCA, Liberian Register and Dominican Maritime Authority.
Marlins’ development team placed great importance on real life case studies to enhance the learning experience: “We create a learning experience that requires the participant to make decisions in role play scenarios that replicate as closely as possible the environment of a real life emergency on a passenger ship. This is critical so that in the event of a real emergency, they have an experience to draw on,” said Catherine Logie, Marlins manager.
Both elearning courses are available on the Marlins Learning Management System. Crew members can study at their own pace, anywhere in the world and gain their approved STCW certificate quickly and easily, the company claimed.
