Seagull Licensed to Utilize ISF Onboard Training Books

Press Release
Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Norwegian training specialist Seagull AS signs a licensing agreement with the International Shipping Federation (ISF).

The agreement allows Seagull to utilise electronic versions of the widely-used ISF Onboard Training Record Books in conjunction with the Seagull Competence Manager software, granting them the right to develop an electronic version of all four ISF Record Books and sub-licence these to ship operators using the Seagull Training Administrator program.

The four ISF Record Books – for trainee deck officers, engineer officers, deck ratings and engine ratings –have all been written to reflect the amended competence requirements of STCW 2010.  They include detailed training tasks to ensure that trainees receive properly structured onboard training, and so make best use of their seagoing service. The ISF books also assist officers who are supervising the training to make an objective evaluation of whether trainees have achieved the required level of competence.  

The Seagull Training Administrator defines the competency profiles and manages the competency training and assessment activities for individual seafarers, including tracking them from ship to ship. Everything is controlled onshore and all information goes to the master database and is then replicated onboard. All the functionality can be delivered for local use onboard as well as web based for online use.

“ISF is pleased to allow Seagull to make use of our Record Books, satisfying a request from our Manning and Training Committee to facilitate their availability electronically,” says ISF Secretary General, Peter Hinchliffe. “This should provide a very useful supplement to paper-based record books, allowing the operator to choose the best of both worlds.”
