Maritime solutions provider Wallem Group has selected cloud-based simulation from ARI Simulation for training of its 7,000 seafarers.
The cloud infrastructure will provide a single simulation environment with access to a wide range of training modules, including navigational, machinery operations and liquid cargo handling, among others.
This aims to address the gaps of training requirements and skills amid the increased use of advanced technology.
A safe navigational mentality and awareness start from having the complete picture in training. We selected ARI Simulation for its future-proof and innovative technology, analytics, and the possibility to evaluate individual competence in both technical and behavioral criteria. Another important reason for choosing ARI is that it is based in India; in these times of travel restrictions due to the COVID, we can also utilize the local support for the physical training,
…Frank Coles, Wallem Group CEO, explained.
Embedding the cloud-based simulation solution within a digital ecosystem provides a framework that allows us to create a comprehensive training and assessment platform,
…Mr Shravan Rewari, CEO ARI Simulation, added.
In addition, simulators and assistive technologies seek to ensure that training, assessment and certification can continue without disruption during and after the pandemic.
Over the summer, Finnish technology group Wartsila launched a cloud simulation platform to enable seafarer schools to continue training despite the lockdowns and distancing imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak.
