    Combination Courses

    For customers who require multiple courses from KONGSBERG, we offer compressed combination course packages to reduce our customers' travel cost, both through reduced number of travels and shorter course duration. 

     

     

    As all our courses consist of several smaller submodules, we can shorten the total duration of your courses by removing overlapping content, such as introductions, common Hardware modules, Network modules etc.

     

     

    Examples of typical combination packages are:

    • K-Pos Maintenance & K-Bridge Maintenance
    • K-Chief Step 1 & K-Chief Step 2
    • KPOS Maintenance & HIPAP Technical
    • K-Chief Operator & K-Safe Operator
    • K-Pos Maintenance, K-Chief Step 1 & K-Chief Step 2

    Competence Assessment

    KONGSBERG MARITIME have a proud history of helping our customers reach their goals. With both maritime, technical and operational competence, we work closely together with our customers to assess competence that measure key performance indicators. 

    Verification of competency is to collect enough evidence that individuals can perform or behave to a specified standard in a defined role:

    • What the operator/engineer should know 
    • What skills the operator/engineer should be able to do
    • How the operator/engineer modifies his/her attitudes in various situations

    Our long experience with a wide variety of Training and Advisory services every day, all over the globe, makes our services exceptional. We have a unique combination of technical and operational knowledge and skills. When customers have ideas or challenges that initiate competence assessment, we are proud to support through the process, create assessment and identify competence within different domains for a safe and efficient, operation. 

    We all make judgements/assessments based upon personal impressions, which are subjective. Objective assessment however, needs to be measurable and is therefore based upon the setting of criteria and performance objectives. The Competence Assessment are related to functions and measurable standards of performance.

    Various assessment methods can be used to assess competence. Two main methods for performing competence assessment are offered through online tests and onsite practical assessment. 

    Online tests 

    The entire process is streamlined for both the company and the assessed individuals. Companies are also able to assign thousands of tests with just one single click and be in full control of the assessment process.

    Additional advantages for companies are: setting their own passing scores, comparing the performance of the assessed individuals to the industry and developing their own norm base.

    • Individuals can take the assessment anywhere, anytime, from any device.
    • Can be hosted on own server – ensuring confidentiality
    • Content are provided by KONGSBERG
    • Questions can be tailor made to a specific operation/need
    • Enhance the «attitude» among crew for improving competence
    • Generate discussions on various topics

    On site assessment (Training Centre)

    The assessment can be done for both crews and individuals. 

    Additional advantages for companies are: setting their own competence requirements, comparing the performance of the assessed crew / individuals to the industry and developing their own norm base. 

    Cases and exercises using full scale bridge / engine-room simulator / operator station / crane simulator focusing on:

    • BRM / MRM elements and human factor 
    • Operations within DP, Crane, Automation, Navigation, 
    • Preparation for DNVGL DP Operator certification Scheme

     

     

    On board assessments through the Blended Learning Tool – DP-Cap™

    DP-Cap is an eLearning and an assessment Tool in combination. The Tool is operated onboard the Vessels where the actual training is needed including Field Specific exercises. Devises used are Tablets that are operated online or offline. The exercises require an individual log-on, and the scores include for pass or fail criteria. Data from each eLearning module is a part of the overall training matrix for the Client and are included at the individual officer’s competency level.  ​

    • Each DP CAP level contains theoretical assessments with multiple choice questions. The questions are specific for each exercise, and are tailor made for verifying that the candidates have the level of knowledge necessary for this specific level before proceeding to the next level
    • The candidate has three tries available to pass the theoretical test. If the candidate fails to pass the test on three tries, he will need an administrator (Captain/ Chief Officer) to reset the exercise to have more attempts available
    • If a candidate fails a theoretical assessment, the questions and alternatives will not be repeated in the same order as previously, which raises the level of difficulty considerably. The intention is that the candidate will have to revisit the exercise part and redo the assessment after gaining more knowledge

    Additionally, to the exam, an appointed administrator (Captain/ Chief Officer) will have to confirm that both the theoretical and the practical exercises were carried out in a good way and by the correct person. The confirmation is carried out by entering the administrator’s personal codes. 

    Find a DP-Cap Training Matrix sample where DP-Cap is used as a tool I combination with simulator courses and sea time. The sample is for a shuttle tanker company.

      Customised Training

      To give each customer exactly the competence that your crews are lacking, we offer customised courses, based on your input.

      Using real examples from our incident database, we continuously aim to update the training such that similar situations will be deescalated, and repetition of incidents is avoided. KONGSBERG aims to help our customers maximise their performance during the vessel’s lifecycle by offering customised courses.

      At sea, almost every ship is unique, and generic training will only get you to a certain level. We offer vessel specific courses, where we use your ship’s exact software, your exact drawings, your vessel’s configuration and hardware setup during the course.

      We offer a wide variety of high-end, customised packages on request, for instance:

      • Vessel specific courses
      • Operation specific courses
      • Scenario based training 
      • Emergency Response training 
      • Onboard/Onsite training
      • Remote training
      • Advisory services

       

      In customised courses, there will only be participants from your own company, which allows for very open discussions and sharing of experience.

      Initially, when ordering a customised course, we offer a quick analysis of your crews’ competence as input to the process of establishing the course contents.

This ability to carry out practical tasks gives the participant hands-on experience as a basis for safe and sustainable operation. All that is required for students and instructors to take part is a PC or Mac, preferably with two monitors and a headset.
