Seagull’s MLC CBT solution
Norwegian distance-learning training specialist Seagull has launched four new Maritime Labour Convention (MLC)-focused computer-based training (CBT) modules to cover the key areas of management, leadership, lifestyle and physical health training.
Seagull’s first two CBT modules provided a basic introduction to MLC 2006. One raised general awareness and the other targeted management and operational staff. The company said these had been widely taken up and that the latest four modules addressed critical areas highlighted by MLC 2006 at a more detailed level.
“We have been listening to our shipping company customers, who have been telling us they want a package of MLC-oriented training titles,” said Seagull managing director Roger Ringstad. “In response we have been working with experts to develop training materials that specifically support companies in meeting the training requirements of MLC.”
As well as the six training modules tailored to assist MLC 2006 compliance, Seagull’s existing range of CBT modules are intended to help companies meet the convention’s requirements.
One of the new modules, on onboard responsibilities, provides details of the requirements that senior ship officers must fulfil to ensure compliance. It covers areas of inspection on board ship, the information and onboard records that are needed, the validity of certification and the consequences of non-compliance. This one-hour module provides an introduction to the MLC, its background and regulatory structure and the International Labour Organization’s role.
