Maritime Training of the Future
Join us for an exciting, dynamic and interactive event where the latest trends within maritime training will be presented and discussed.
The presentations will include simulator and VR based long distance training solutions, how state-of-the-art E-learning and competence assessment goes hand-in-hand with implementation of remote-piloting solutions and finally we will hear about the brand new Bachelor in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering education.

17:05 - 17:30 Latest developments in VR based training
by Jan Michelsen, FORCE Technology

The latest advances with Virtual Reality based simulation technology offer new and unprecedented ways of conducting pilot training. 
Mobility and flexibility are the key and the solution provides the user with a fully immersive training experience that takes the learning outcome to a whole new level.

17:30 - 17:50 Maritime training of the future is: High impact training, anywhere, anytime
by Mikkel Navarro Hansen, Aprendio

The green transition as well as rapid digitalization require a constant focus on people and the skills we have. How do we ensure that we keep up with training and learning?
The presentation will discuss the challenges of training and discuss solutions on how to develop and deliver training using the latest technologies.

17:50 - 18:35 Refreshments and Virtual Reality demos (“hands”-on)
During the break it will be possible to try and test state-of-the-art VR training equipment.

18:35 - 19:10 Remote piloting - and needed training
by Brian Schmidt Nielsen, DanPilot and Mikkel Navarro Hansen, Aprendio

DanPilot is spearheading the introduction of remote pilotage in Danish Waters for parts of the major transit routes in the Danish Straits. Remote pilotage is not only a technology project.
We will demonstrate how we manage skills and training of not just pilots – but also the seafarers, all to ensure safe and efficient pilotage.
We will go through the pilots internal training scheme, as well as the crew- training and assessment solution which is part of the remote pilotage safety assessment.

19:10 - 19:50 Maritime training at MARTEC
by Rasmus Mandrup Jeppesen and Kimie Ann Kragh, MARTEC

Presentation of MARTECs new Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, focusing on content and learning methods.
Furthermore MARTECs perspective on the support of lifelong learning and the development of competencies in the maritime sector will be presented. Emphasis will be on flexible learning environments to increase access to education/courses, and thereby support and enable the continuous development of professionals
