Over the past 12 months, here at Ocean Technologies Group we have been reviewing and consolidating all of Videotel’s and Seagull’s certified eLearning courses into the new Ocean Learning Library. 54 of our most popular have been consolidated with each course designed, as ever, to make seafarers safer and better at what they do. These courses can be taken through a company subscription, via the Ocean Learning Platform, or Pay-As-You-Go from our website.
Harmonised Digitally Secure Certification
As part of our course consolidation journey, we have also sought to simplify and harmonise the process for obtaining a course certificate. We have also rationalised our course and certification fees, moving to a simpler fee structure in US dollars.
Another exciting development in Ocean’s journey is our newly designed, digitally secure Course Certificate. The growing appetite in the maritime industry for e-certificates and need for them to be independently verifiable is now a reality, so we have included unique QR codes on all our templates which link to our certificate database for independent checking.
