This year, at the 13th Asia-Pacific Manning &Training Conference, Manila, Videotel will be inviting visitors to step into the seafarer’s shoes and try a hands-on simulation of the training that a seafarer can expect on board a vessel fitted with its brand new state of the art VOD G2 training system.
