High Demand for Videotel Shipboard Security Course

Tuesday, October 21, 2003
Videotel Marine International's Shipboard Security course has been in exceptionally high demand since it received approval from the UK MCA three weeks ago. Applications are likely to grow again now that the course has received official approval from the Liberian Registry. The Liberian Registry is one of the largest in the world, with almost 2,000 ships under its flag, and is consistently on the Paris MOU White List of high-standard flags. The course has also been approved by Kuwait and the Isle of Man. Applications for the course have doubled over the three weeks since it received approval from the UK MCA. Over 500 candidates from 20 countries have enrolled since the course was launched. The Shipboard Security course consists of an interactive CD-ROM based training package or a video and printed course book. It covers all aspects of the role of Ship Security Officer, including threat and vulnerability assessment, communications, defensive and preventive measures and contingency planning. The candidate's course work is returned to Videotel for assessment by independent third-party assessors. The course takes about 21 hours in total, and can be completed while at sea.
