Superyacht Crew & (STCW ISPS) Maritime Security Training Online

Sheldon Kaye  |  24th November 2017

With so many superyachts positioned around the world, Virtual Training Centre (VTC) realise how difficult it is for crew members to locate a convenient training centre, with the availability to offer training on specific dates or at short notice. Travelling to a test centre also requires a significant amount of travel arrangements and associated costs, with accommodation to be considered.

Demand is increasing for crew members to obtain the Designated Security Duties (PDSD) certification within the ever-growing superyacht community, online training / eLearning is the ideal solution, as it is available 24/7 all year round. All that is required a reliable internet connection.

VTC a UK-based, online training company is an Approved Course Provider by the UK DfT Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA). They provide both the Proficiency in Security Awareness (PSA) and Proficiency in Designated Security Duties (PDSD) courses, 100% online without the requirement to attend a test centre for certification purposes.

Everything is completed through the online system which enables learners to train at their own pace and convenience. The course completion certification is downloadable on successful completion of the course and the official certificate is emailed to the learner soon after.

Global online training is growing at a phenomenal rate, as convenience, lower costs and consistency in delivery and quality make the process of learning specific new skills more efficient.
