Onboard Maritime (OM) has been appointed by the UK’s largest maritime training provider, Clyde Marine Training, to provide a digital training support platform to Officer Cadets when onboard vessels.
The digital learning platform provides Cadets with access to learning resources aligned to STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping) training competencies, support and guidance for completion of their training record, as well as tutor-led micro-learning modules.
All aspects of the platform are designed to support cadets’ learning and maritime life and will complement existing academic support provided by colleges.
Angus Ferguson, CEO and Founder of Onboard Maritime, said: “We’re delighted to be Clyde Marine Training’s provider for this digital cadet platform and have the opportunity to support cadets holistically and help them embark on amazing careers at sea.
“I created Onboard Maritime’s digital learning to help cadets complete their studies and achieve lasting maritime careers. Our tutor-led, online courses are completely flexible – providing additional accessible support when the cadets are undergoing the sea phases of their cadetships.”
Thomas Campbell, General Manager, Clyde Marine Training also commented on how the partnership will support the needs of cadets: “Clyde Marine Training are delighted to be working with Onboard Maritime in the delivery of the Cadet Development Programme.
“We believe in taking a proactive approach to support our cadets and their onboard training, and this programme is designed to bridge the gap between the learning the cadet does at college and the Training Record Book (TRB) tasks at sea. I feel this is an exciting, strategic partnership to support our cadets and create a full learning experience preparing them well for their career at sea.”
