ABS Certified Maritime Incidents Lessons Learned Training Programs for the Operations and Management Personnel
SQLearn is a training center approved by the Liberian Registry and ABS and offers e-learning courses for seafarers, cruise ship crews and yachts crews.
Ships transport large volumes of goods as well as passengers on board. In recent years, the industry has reduced personal injuries and damage to the environment and assets due to the increased focus, improved ship design and construction, and training. Despite the best practices for safe operations by the vessel operators, accidents and other incidents do occur as a result of - personnel/technical error or certain difficult circumstances.
Shipping companies have different ways of managing the lessons learned from incidents. But to make sure that such incidents do not happen again, it is imperative to train the staff and inform them of the details of an incident and the outcome of the investigation, including the important lessons learned.
The ABS certified, SQLearn Lessons Learned online training programs on maritime incidents help the operations and management staff appreciate the importance of intervention in hazardous situations, identify the causes that led to the incident, understand how to prevent such incidents from reoccurring, and the industry best standards.
