BIMCO, Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers and Ocean Technologies Group subsidiary Videotel have partnered to create a high-quality, accessible educational resource to help maritime students across the globe to continue their studies remotely during the coronavirus pandemic.

Seattle-based Maritime Training Services (MTS) has joined the new Ocean Technologies Group, home to COEX, Seagull Maritime, Tero Marine and Videotel.

Industry veteran Manish Singh has joined the maritime knowledge services group as CEO, with Roger Ringstad assuming role of executive chairman.

Maritime training provider Videotel has announced that it is offering the maritime industry free access to its new training package, “The 2020 Sulphur Regulations – Achieving Compliance”.

Videotel has launched a new virtual reality (VR) training title to help ship operators ensure their cargo tanks are properly cleaned and avoid millions of pounds of potential claims due to insufficient cleaning of tanks onboard chemical tankers.

As a direct response to the joint ownership and new collaboration between Seagull and Videotel, Seagull is offering a new and free training title on Seafarers Mental Health and Wellbeing.

Following the acquisition by Oakley Capital of Seagull and Videotel, the group has announced a commitment to invest more than $30 million over the next 5 years in new courseware and technology.
