LR Launches Distance Learning Training Program

Tuesday, September 16, 2003
Lloyd’s Register has launched an interactive, CD-ROM distance learning training program for shipboard staff, produced in co-operation with leading training technology organisation Videotel Interactive. The new program has been designed and produced as an integral component of Lloyd’s Register’s Hull Planned Maintenance Scheme (HPMS), one of several maintenance management services the Lloyd’s Register Group offers to enable shipboard staff to take a more active role in the classification process. HPMS is an alternative hull survey regime for selected ship types based on the alignment and integration of classification requirements with an operator’s existing hull inspection and maintenance programme. It enables operators who have already demonstrated a commitment to maintenance management to empower selected, accredited shipboard staff to carry out regular hull inspections. The results are then presented to a Lloyd’s Register Group surveyor for verification during the annual class survey. The CD-ROM is designed to be both a learning aid and a reference document that draws on the Lloyd’s Register Group’s experience in the survey of ships. It contains multiple modules which cover a variety of general and ship-type specific topics, including An Introduction to Classification, Personal Health and Safety, General Ship Knowledge, Inspections and Marine Coatings. The ship-type specific modules illustrate the design and construction processes for that particular ship type, along with details of common defects. Such units have been prepared for gas carriers, passenger ships, container ships, vehicle carriers and ro-ro ships. Users are required to demonstrate their understanding of each unit by completing an in-built assessment.
