JRC/Alphatron Marine is proud to announce the Online Training Module at the Global Training Academy (GTA)
On 30th September 2020 we will launch our online learning management system. With this system training courses can be followed by our distributors, wherever they are in the world. Instead of traveling to one of our Centers of Excellence or other training locations, you can now log in via the GTA-portal on your mobile, tablet, or computer whenever and wherever it is most convenient for you. Exactly what you need to ensure your skills are up-to-date.
Until now the classroom training courses are given by trainers with years of experience in training and service in the maritime field. This contributes to the high-quality standard that we set for our training courses. The starting point in the development of the Online Training Module was to ensure that the quality of the new online courses matches the quality of the current classroom trainings. Therefore, we worked closely together with different departments from JRC and Alphatron Marine worldwide, and we brought in some expertise to help us translate our regular training methods into a digital version.
Not all training courses will be the same. “For some simpler equipment, a participant will be able to obtain a certificate through an online course. For other advanced equipment we will combine the course with an online classroom,” explains Monique Scholten, Manager Training at JRC | Alphatron Marine. “For more complicated equipment such as radars, MFD’s and VDR, actual classroom training will still be needed. Things like regulations and software updates can be taught and practiced online, but an actual installation needs to be practiced on real equipment. Within these kinds of courses, you will have to obtain partial certificates before you can participate in a classroom training”.
“Our trainers are working hard to get more courses available in the near future and the next step will be the online training availability for other users such as ship’s crew. Also these online training courses are provided by our foreign offices”, says Monique Scholten.
