One of the world's leading paint and coating suppliers, Jotun, has co-operated with Seagull Maritime AS, to develop an informative set of e-learning modules on the theme of onboard paint maintenance, with emphasis on in-service treatments.
OCIMF (Oil Companies International Marine Forum) has recently released their new Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ) that takes effect on 17th of September 2018. With a complete section on maritime security devoted to Cyber Security, this is the first major revision of OCIMF’s VIQ since 2013.
From a new trainee to the Master, all crewmembers on board a vessel must be trained and ready to deliver effective first aid in the event of a medical emergency. Whether treatment is given to counteract shock, relieve pain or prevent further injury or death, it is often essential that first aid is given quickly to preserve life, prevent worsening or promote recovery. In some cases, such as severe bleeding or asphyxiation, a few seconds’ delay might mean the difference between life and death.
One of the challenges that navigating officers’ face is a large number of ECDIS systems found on vessels, all with different user interfaces. However, on boarding vessels officers need to be able to competently use the ECDIS, as it could be their main source of navigation. In order to assist the shipping industry, Seagull has partnered with ECDIS developers to create cost-effective ECDIS type-specific training for several of the widely used models.
Across the global maritime community, vessels, ports and facilities are increasingly dependent on cyber systems. Failure to anticipate and prepare for a cyber incident could lead to disastrous consequences.
There has been a positive trend for the Norwegian International Ship (NIS) register over the past 3 years, with more ship-owners registering their vessels back to Norwegian flag. According to Olav Akselsen, Director of the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA), ‘more than 230 vessels have been registered in NIS since 2014, most of them coming back to Norwegian flag due to changed operational terms for the owners’.
Seagull Maritime continues to update the Seagull Training App. The newly enhanced Seagull Training App is now complete with the possibility to run e-learning modules and learning films directly from the main menu. The App can be used across a range of mobile device including tablets, in both Android and iOS formats, with dynamic screen layouts for all sizes.
Produced by DNV GL, the Cyber Security Awareness training is set out to help seafarers identify and respond to cyber threats.
On the 8th September 2017 the International Convention of the Control and Management of Ship's Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM Convention) entered into force. With a few exceptions, it will apply to all ships in international trade beginning in 2017 and fully implemented in 2024.
Seagull Maritime will offer the most comprehensive e-learning package in the Maritime industry for personal working in potential explosive atmospheres. The training content is developed by ExTek and Seagull Oil & Gas, and follows the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards.
