Portable Classroom demonstrates Kongsberg Maritime's commitment to providing first-class training solutions.
You need to keep your operators trained and prepared. Now you can send
them to us, or let us bring the classroom to you!
Last year, KONGSBERG developed an easier way to meet and train its customers
wherever they are in the world. The result, called the "Portable Classroom", demonstrates
Kongsberg Maritime's commitment to providing first-class training solutions. It
is intended for use at customer sites, Kongsberg Maritime offices and onboard vessels.
"We've now gained considerable experience with this travelling system," says
Kongsberg Maritime's Project Leader and developer Ingar Tveiten. "We have run courses
with customers in Greece, on vessels in Spain and Trinidad, and at a number of Norwegian
locations. Our feedback has so far been very positive.
"We see areas for improvement, so as we construct new portable classrooms we
will standardise and simplify them. The most important thing for us now is to be
more flexible about reaching the customer where they want us. It's easier to ship
an instructor and a portable classroom to the customer, than move an entire class
to us," he says. Facts about the training box:
The training box is at the core of the portable classroom concept. This easy-to-transport
box is equipped with a single remote control system (RCU) and the most common remote
input/output (RIO) modules, which are interchangeable, depending on the type of
equipment on the vessel. Additionally, ten fully loaded laptop PCs are included.
These are operator stations during training. The box offers access to all of the
technical equipment and software required to arrange hands-on training for Kongsberg
Maritime customers worldwide.
