Aurora Digital Solutions and MNTB launch survey on seafarer training

9th Mar 2021

Northern Marine Group subsidiary, Aurora Digital Solutions, has teamed up with the UK Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) to create an ‘E-Learning and Immersive Learning in Seafarer Training’ survey.

The survey aims to gather the opinion of maritime industry professionals about their current and future ambitions for E-learning and Immersive Learning and includes an opportunity to win one of two Oculus Quest VR headsets.

Launching the collaboration, MNTB Project Manager Lauren Bishopp said: “Contributions to this short survey will be invaluable as part of our research into E-Learning and Immersive Training in the maritime training sector.

"It will also enable us to better understand how our industry partners are using these technologies and how they feel about the future opportunities these technologies present to advance seafarer training.  

“It’s vital that we, as an industry, constantly evaluate new opportunities that present themselves, especially with regard to improving training and ultimately safety on board.”

Jamie Roberts, Digital Innovation Manager, Aurora Digital Solutions added: “At Aurora Digital Solutions, we specialise in Maritime Asset Management Systems, Virtual and Augmented reality and business digitalisation solutions.

“We are therefore very proud to support the MNTB in gauging industry views of E-learning and Immersive Learning in Seafarer Training.”
