Training at V.Ships

At V.Ships, training is considered to be a central pillar, which makes an essential contribution to the safety and effectiveness of the overall operation, whether afloat or ashore. Training for seafarers is conducted ashore in our own global network of training centres, as well as afloat by a combination of Marine Training Superintendents and SeaTec On Board Trainers. 

Ashore, thirty three trainers in fifteen training centres deliver essential pre- joining training. This is a combination of training which is mandatory either through regulation, or because of the value added by the training, which V.Ships has determined will contribute to safe and effective vessel operations. Blended delivery means include instructor-led presentations, use of computer-based training aids and advanced Crew Resource Management, Bridge Team and Engine Resource management courses harnessing recently acquired, modern simulators.
