Hamburg: GL Maritime Software (GL) and Marlow Navigation (Marlow), one of the leading crew managers, have undertaken a new cooperation to improve crew training on shipmanagement software.
Working together the partners have installed GL ShipManager in two of Marlow’s training centres, in the Philippines and Ukraine. This will enable customers who have crew set to join a vessel running GL Software to be trained in Marlow’s computer labs, before they set foot onboard a vessel. GL has provided and installed training versions of the system in the labs and prepared Marlow’s trainers to familiarise crew with the system and teach its usage.
“Providing training on standard ship management applications, like the one from GL, is a significant effort for a shipping company, especially if the crew keeps changing,” said Capt. Walter Wekenborg, Director Training & Human Resources at Marlow Navigation, “We can help our joint clients to reduce this effort and their costs through this cooperation.” [19/03/13]
