Armona has introduced a comprehensive training process for training crew both onboard and ashore. The training system uses training units which provide access to Videos, Computer-based Training, Courses and Interactive Programs. A web-based fleet administration unit enables access to seafarer's results and performance by importing training records data from the various vessels.
During the Recruitment Process all officers carry out an on-line assessment as part of the pre-assessment test in accordance with the specific duties. No candidate who fails the pre-assessment test will be employed. Successful candidates join an office training program before their first assignment and their results will again be transferred to the web-based Fleet Training Administrator Unit.
Following selected onboard training periods, a training record is established and monitored by the operator and there are assessment processes carried out through internal and external audits, together with masters’ and superintendents' evaluation reports, additional training needs are determined.
