Training for Operator, Staff and Craftsman
Swiftships’ training programs are customized to meet the specific needs of our clients, which we identify through systematic training needs analysis. Based on the requirements, we provide specialized training for operator and crew ranging from essential technical training about the vessels, to in-depth courses for vessels’ maintenance and operation. Swiftships’ training programs combine theoretical learning, hands-on practice, and the use of simulators. Training can be conducted in our shipyards and training facilities in the US, or at client’s location. Our proven methodology helps our clients to maximize fleet preparedness, maintain operational effectiveness and reduce vessels’ downtime – all leading to reduced operational costs and extended vessels’ service life.
We also provide specialized training packages for our co-production programs that range from craftsman to logistics and management training. Our training methodology for local build programs proved efficient in transferring the knowledge and skills required to locally construct quality vessels using Swiftships designs.
Our US trainers are qualified to provide training in various disciplines, ranging from vessel’s construction and maintenance to ship operation, maintenance and repair.
We conduct training in our facilities, and if required, we arrange training courses with third parties.
We recognize that in-country training is an effective way to transfer the required knowledge and skills for indigenous and independent capabilities in shipbuilding, maintenance, repair or crew training. Our training programs are comprehensive and range from skills development for craftsmen, to managers’ level, and are customized depending on the project’s scope. Our support extends to the level our clients require, including day-to-day management and supervision, hands-on training, and training for specialized skills.
We extend our programs, as required, to include specialized courses, which can be conducted in training institutes or at our partners’ facilities. These courses include system integration, RI&D and advanced technology programs.
