Warships 101 e-Learning course on offer from BMT to plug the training gap that is needed to drive cost-effective upskilling.
BMT, Defence and Security has today switched on its Warships 101 e-learning course, which offers an introductory look into Warships, their design, capability, and requirements.
The course is self-paced and can be completed in around 6-hours with content divided over 20-modules. The course covers what a Warship is, how its requirements are specified, and how it is designed and built. This is a perfect introductory course into the technical and system management aspects of Warships, including how capabilities are defined and met.
“I am excited that in this time of change, we are able to continue to deliver our engineering excellence and demonstrate our true capability through the execution of this course,” BMT, Global Business Development, Director Rob Teasdale comments.
“While current circumstances have disrupted many traditional processes, including our face-to-face courses and events, it has also unleashed new opportunities for us. This e-learning course further supports the digitisation of our traditional and more intensive 5-day courses, which demonstrate our core areas of Defence expertise with submarines, warships and the management of large fleet sustainment and through life support.” he said.
“As a business, we are fortunate in that we have the ability to be agile in developing a new course offering for our clients. Our courses allow us to share our diverse experience and skills with the world. We have the platforms and network to do this digitally.” Mr. Teasdale said.
The Warships 101 e-Learning course will be available from 20 May 2020.
