Bureau Veritas Launches E-Learning Program

Press Release
Monday, June 04, 2012

International classification society Bureau Veritas has launched a web-based training program to help companies in the shipping industry train their personnel for implementation of the Maritime Labor Convention.

As the deadline for implementation of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) 2006 draws nearer, companies in the shipping industry are becoming increasingly aware of the need to make sure that they are properly prepared, and that their personnel are correctly trained.  That is why Bureau Veritas has launched its e-learning Introduction to Maritime Labor Convention 2006 training, which facilitates the concurrent training of large numbers of personnel without interrupting their normal working activities, in the process reducing the time and cost encountered when using other, traditional learning courses.

Introduction to Maritime Labor Convention 2006 training has been designed as a first step in MLC-related education. It is aimed both at seafarers and shore-based personnel, as well as those involved in MLC-related issues at a general level. It is also a valuable source of information and guidance for anyone involved in the development of MLC-related documentation as well as to those persons responsible for implementation of MLC systems and procedures on board ships and in the company offices ashore.

Training is divided into eight modules covering the background, concept and requirements of the convention. Each module is interactive, thus helping participants to understand the content by combining various learning methods. Attached internal documents and links to external documents provide a more detailed and comprehensive overview of each subject. Each module includes a self-test and case study, helping participants to acquire the knowledge necessary to undertake the final test and global case study, following which Bureau Veritas attestation is issued.

Claude Maillot, ships in service director, Bureau Veritas says, “Well-trained people are one of the pillars of any successful business, and especially so in such a fast-changing environment as the maritime industry. Responsible companies are continually looking to improve personnel knowledge and understanding of key issues. BV’s Introduction to Maritime Labour Convention 2006 training has been designed with the particular needs of the modern maritime industry - and the time and geographical constraints on those personnel who will typically need to undergo MLC training – in mind.

“Working closely with the Bureau Veritas Business School in Spain, BV’s Marine Division has delivered a high-quality, modern training service which enables companies to be properly prepared, in good time, for the challenges that MLC implementation will undoubtedly present.”
