The MaritimeTraining platform will promote and provide access to a number of innovative IT based maritime education and training (MET) products. The selected products will directly address particular problems or deficiencies in MET, and represent innovative use of computer based or online learning materials. The website will provide a range of new and novel products which are available online and where many are free of charge to use.
With 80% of accidents taking place at sea due to poor communication, widespread implementation of these product materials, courses and tests will save lives, reduce material and financial losses for businesses as well as raise the standards and quality of education and to individuals and training providers.
The MaritimeTraining Platform has only recently been launched and the number of products on this website will increase substantially over time. Check out the product section to view the existing maritime training products and come back again soon to see the many new products to be added to the website.
