A learning app that supports the training of maritime personnel has been developed by the Warsash Maritime Academy, part of Southampton University.
It is available to download free from the Apple iTunes Store and it enables seafarers’ access to updated course materials, career progression charts, the Academy’s maritime course, news and a wide range of training FAQs via an iPad.
The students who are already enrolled on the Academy’s commercial yacht and engineering courses can also access all their course materials via a user name and a password.
The access to course notes will shortly be rolled out to students undertaking unlimited certification starting with phase one officer cadets.
The app enables students with access to iPads to download the course materials remotely even when being offline.
