Global maritime training provider Stream Marine Training (SMT) and Intelligent Seas Group (ISG) are proud to be joining forces to offer technically advanced STCW and Flag State approved eLearning courses.
This collaboration will allow seafarers to learn and develop their skills anywhere in the world. Using interactive and engaging technology, this new venture amalgamates the experience from both companies and allows seafarers the ability to learn from those with vast industry knowledge.
SMT is a leading maritime training provider of STCW short courses and is based at its state-of-the-art facilities on the campus of Glasgow Airport. SMT’s instructors come from a range of maritime and military backgrounds, including Merchant Navy, Royal Navy, Royal Fleet Auxiliary, and the British Army.
In addition to offering a vast range of courses for the maritime industry, SMT also delivers courses in oil and gas and renewable energy usage. SMT holds practical courses onsite, as well as webinar courses online and, in partnership with ISG, has added eLearning courses to the portfolio, which can be completed at a time that suits the individual.
ISG was created on the foundation of digital learning and marine expertise and its aim is to allow seafarers to gain knowledge and skills, whilst minimising logistical issues and costs.
Due to the nature of a career at sea, finding time to train and update skills can be difficult, therefore ISG has created a blend of bespoke training which can be completed at any time. The courses are approved by the STCW and other relevant organising bodies and can be tailored depending on the needs of the client. Both SMT and ISG have extensive knowledge in the maritime industry.
Group Operations Director at SMT, Katy Womersley explains: “This collaboration will allow seafarers to advance their skills with the use of up-to-date technology which is interactive and interesting. Through training online, in their own time, seafarers and shipping companies will be able to mitigate travel and accommodation costs and focus on developing their skills in a comfortable environment."
