The objective of the Container Industry Competence Standard (CICS) is to provide a complete training and competence management standard helping container vessel operators to comply with requirements and improving knowledge and competence among their crew.
As part of the Competence Manager in Seagull’s Training Administrator (STA), the Container Industry Standard is linked in with our training modules (CBT) and Competence Evaluation System (CES), forming a complete system for training and assessment which will follow the officer from ship to ship within the company and can be monitored online by the responsible office personnel.
Advantages of using CICS:
- Electronic records of all completed tasks and assessments are available onboard and online for the individual officer and their supervisors
- Automatic transfer of all records belonging to the officer between vessel and shore
- Complete overview of all officers development and level of competence available for the training manager ashore
- Easy to use status and progress reports • Possible to define company specific competences
