At Marine Learning Systems our backup policy ensures that no more than 15 minutes of data could ever be lost. And in practice, a failure would result in a loss window which is typically much smaller. To ensure this, automated backups are taken every 15 minutes, or more frequently, and are immediately transferred to

With the number of employees we had spread across our system, and needing to get them all up from a familiarization standpoint to a new level of training, we had to think differently.

a glaring gap in our (and many other) industries. This needs to change, and fortunately new technologies are starting to close the gap. The first example I am aware of for the maritime industry is the “SkillGrader”.The Skill Grader was initially developed as a collaboration between Marine Learning Systems and the training and assessment experts at our largest customer, the Carnival Group of cruise lines. The original goal was to support a sophisticated competency framework and performance-related training. This required a way to simply, objectively and deeply assess skills for teams and individual
