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.
Marlink and Seagull Maritime have entered into a partnership to introduce a step-change in onboard training this year, creating an online, satcom enabled environment for the distribution and updating of e-learning material. The partnership combines Marlink and Seagull’s respective domain expertise to streamline and automate e-learning content distribution and management. Additional functionality will be offered later this year to enable fully digitalised services with the Seagull software running on Marlink’s XChange centralised IT and communications management platform, providing full on-board hosting, and monitoring of Seagulls market leading software to improve crews’ knowledge and qualification.
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.
Onboard Danish flagged vessels members of the safety group are required to undergo training concerning the working environment approved by the Danish Maritime Authority. This is also called “Section 16 course”. Immediately after the election of a safety representative and appointment of a supervisor, the ship owner shall enrol them for the Section 16 course. The objective of this course is to give seafarer’s necessary training and knowledge required to carry out their duties as a member of the safety organization in cooperation with others to promote a safe and healthy working environment on board ships.
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.
The international shipping company, Vroon, has recently signed a fleetwide agreement with renowned training provider, Seagull Maritime.

Allowing their seafarers and onshore staff to sit at the top of the class and continue their personal and collective growth.
A young seafarer enters a dark cargo hold and starts to climb down the first ladder. This is the last inspection of the cargo holds he is doing before going home on leave. He is exited to come home and meet his two children. Half way down the ladder he slips and fall, he falls 16 meters…
Crew Evaluation System (CES) is the preferred tool among ship operators to evaluate the background knowledge of your seafarers. With CES, you can construct your own Company-tailored test using the test editor function or integrate STCW testing to reveal the strengths and weaknesses of any given crew. After analyzing the CES results, you can easily implement the necessary fleet-wide or individual seafarer training programs. Competence will increase, resulting in more confident seafarers.
Carrying out an inspection in the scavenge space of a large two stroke main engine is an extremely useful way of diagnosing engine condition, assessing the need to adjust cylinder lubrication and for planning maintenance. Periodic inspections will reduce maintenance and running costs and avoid large overhaul costs, since problems are found at an early stage.
