Over the past few days Stream Marine Training, SMT have been very busy running live webinar courses with the presence of our valued Customers and the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency, MCA. The current travel situation acted as a disruptor to the training and certification industry and SMT were among the first ones to raise the subject of MCA SCTW approved webinars.
On successful completion of a two-day webinar over half a dozen participants received an MCA STCW approved certificate. SMT received dispensation for a challenging alternative delivery method in today’s climate. MCA have advised the technology, delivery method, staffing arrangements and content were “more than adequate” with compliments addressed at a unique know-how allowing “for the course content to be the main focus of the presenter”.
Prior to completion of the course, participants were required to sit an online exam. This offering allowed SMT’s customers to update their training certification and expand their knowledge whilst complying with the current Government requirements for self-isolation.
The course participants advised they were a little cautious of the idea at first, yet found every step of the webinar process easy to follow, engaging, educating and fun. SMT pride themselves in supporting the maritime industry and in these particularly challenging times even more so. Well done to the team who have made this happen!
The team at Stream marine are excited to be leading the way and bringing the maritime industry a range of new STCW compliant adaptive training options over the coming weeks starting with:
- Proficiency in Security Awareness
- Proficiency in Designated Security Duties, DSD
- Updating Proficiency in Advanced Fire Fighting, AFFU
- Personal Safety & Responsibility, PSSR
