The system will build and schedule Marlow’s training matrix and provide advanced digital performance reviews and reporting tools, helping to assess results, identify specific needs and find continuous improvement.
Through the system, Marlow will also have access to manufacturer-specific training courses and cloud-based simulations. This includes a wealth of media-rich content, with over 800 blended learning titles on a range of topics from the Ocean Learning Library and extended by Marlow’s specific training material.
âWe are delighted to strengthen the partnership between Ocean Technologies Group and Marlow Navigation and look forward to fully integrating their system into our crew training operations,â said Joern Clodius, Director of Training, Marlow Navigation.
âWe have enjoyed a successful cooperation with Seagull for many years and now that it is part of the OTG group, the move to the OTG platform offers an improved user experience, which will undoubtedly boost engagement and adopting the crew, and most importantly, will make the learning experience more rewarding. Along with many other actionable features and insights, it will also help our business accelerate its potential for talent development and retention, and meet the challenges of navigation and crew training in the digital age, âadded Clodius. .
The learning system will be linked to the Marlow crew database, exchanging data in a secure and transparent manner, reducing administrative workload, as well as creating new digital possibilities for performance measurement and analysis. .
Marlow’s comprehensive training activities are supported by its 120+ clients. This includes approximately 2,900 in-person crew refresher courses per year at dedicated state-of-the-art training facilities, as well as preparing 360 cadets per year for their profession at sea. The OTG- solution Marlow is an integral part of this training going forward, ensuring the continued qualification and skills development of sailors.
