The Nautical Institute Wins Training Award

The Nautical Institute's free Alert! vodcast service wins it the Lloyd's List 2012 training award.

The judges were impressed by The Nautical Institute’s “progressive and inventive approach to training”, viewing the series of free video podcasts as “a valuable and innovate advance.”

The ‘vodcasts’ aim to raise awareness amongst maritime students of Human Element issues and are designed to be shared via a wide range of social media and networking sites. A range of vodcasts can be viewed on the Alert! Website here.

Maritime training is essential to ensuring mariner’s safety at sea; particularly relevant as new technology and regulations require mariners to develop new sets of skills.

Each year, the award goes to a company that has shown outstanding commitment to training its employees ashore or at sea, and has provided training to improve the organisation’s performance, the employees’ well-being or standards across the maritime industry as a whole.

The award was presented by Jayne Erskine, Head of Corporate Services, at the UK Hydrographic Office.
