The American P&I Club sees managing crew competence as key to safety, security and environmental protection. Although training is essential for developing competence, knowledge and skills are often lost soon after the training event, unless they are applied. To address this, the Club, together with IDESS IT developed an online Learning Management System that not only transfers knowledge but also monitors retention through periodic assessment. The output from the assessment of each candidate is analyzed. Any gaps identified are closed by links to relevant learning resources, thereby reinforcing retention systematically, supporting continual personal improvement, and maintaining crew competence.
