For 40 years, Videotel has provided the maritime industry with training for seafarers on key important issues such as safety, legislation and technology.

This year, to mark its 40th anniversary, Videotel released its latest training catalog, STCW Maritime Training Catalog 2013-2014, which comprises more than 800 new and updated titles. It also reflects Videotel’s blended training approach for video, computer-based training (CBT) and interactive courses, available in some 29 languages.

Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel Marine International, said,“We began making training products for the marine industry back in 1973, at a time when major shipping companies needed to improve their onboard training and IMCO – the forerunner of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) – wanted to see high quality training materials supplied to maritime colleges, especially those in fast developing countries.”

“We still hold true to those values today by carefully researching our programs, filming on location onboard ships and selectively using animation as and when circumstances dictate. Nothing, however, can achieve the emotiveness of film. A comprehensive team of experts from all sectors of the industry make up our highly respected steering committees. With every production, our experienced in-house team seeks the highest levels of quality and accuracy, consulting industry experts at every stage. What’s more, we continually update our material as regulations and operational techniques change.”

Videotel also boasts tutor-led distance learning training courses through Videotel Academy’s virtual classroom. As well as offering a selection of training titles and Webinars, Videotel Academy also offers bespoke training solutions for companies with specific requirements for their in-house training.

All training provided by Videotel is compliant with IMO ISM STCW standards and is available on board using Videotel On Demand (VOD), as well as online and onshore in video, CBT, interactive CD and accompanying booklet formats.
