Maritime training provider Seagull announced the release of nine new eLearning titles.

The fourth quarter release includes titles covering Electrical safety, Galley operations – nutrition, Nutrition and well-being – awareness, Electric propulsion – electrical machines, Electric propulsion – power electronics, Electric propulsion – electric propulsion systems for ships, Marine environmental awareness – sustainable shipping, Enclosed space entry – awareness and Shore based assessment.

Fatalities and major incidents related to enclosed space entry continue to fuel the urgent requirement to increase crew awareness and Seagull has addressed this crucial issue by developing a new awareness module building on the existing version whose objectives are to enable the learner to become aware of and avoid the dangers of enclosed spaces onboard ship and prepare them to take part in enclosed space entry and rescue.

The module identifies the hazards likely to be faced during entry into enclosed spaces and the precautions that must be taken before entry, recognizes the signs of adverse health effects caused by exposure to hazards in enclosed spaces and the additional precautions required when the atmosphere in an enclosed space is either known or suspected to be unsafe.

In addition, it helps the learner to know both the personal protective equipment required and the correct initial actions to be taken to rescue crew from an enclosed space.

Marine environmental awareness – sustainable shipping, is the third marine environmental awareness module which, with modules 187 Marine Environmental Awareness and 277 Environmental Challenges , will be part of a new onboard course aimed at educating, stimulating and empowering officers to contribute to sustainable shipping and ensure compliance with pollution prevention measures.

The modules’ learning objectives cover the concept of sustainable shipping, the complexity and diversity of the marine environment and the roles of procedures and technical installations in protecting the environment and of the human element in preventing pollution.

The shore-based assessment module focuses on the use of written text methods used by personnel onshore while assessing seafarers onboard ship. It describes how to make best use of multiple choice tests and identifies the required format of test items intended for inclusion in Seagull’s Crew Evaluation System (CES) question database for Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW), detailed and company specific tests.

Three new modules developed covering electrical propulsion are the last in a series of four and cover principles of electric motor operation, the electronic devices used to control propulsion or drive motors and how these elements are put together into the different types of electrical propulsion systems increasingly being installed on ships.

In addition to the nine new titles, 16 titles have been revised. The vessel general permit module has been updated to reflect the 2013 version, which takes effect from December 19, 2013. The oil, chemical and gas tanker training modules have been updated to reflect STCW Manila Amendments and the ship general safety module is now available in four additional languages – Russian, Chinese, Portuguese and Turkish.
