; even venturing into many areas we would normally think of as skills.The Required Tools: At this moment, the goal is to deploy effective training quickly. The tools we require are a learning management system (LMS) to deliver on-line training and assessment, and a conferencing tool to allow for real-time interactions.If you have an LMS already available, great.

Single-V butt welds, fillet welds, square butt welds, pipe joints and overlay welding can all be practiced in various positions using plastic workpieces attached to the stand-up terminal. A welding torch is used to create a seam that is displayed in real time on the simulator’s touchscreen display and the 3D glasses worn by the user.“Ghost”, the virtual trainer, is a huge asset when learning how to handle the torch. It shows the path the torch should take and indicates the correct speed, angle and distance between torch and workpiece

Assessing Skills in the Maritime Industry

; But what about skills? There has been much less research on how to most effectively teach and assess skills. On the teaching side, the maritime industry has led in many ways, and has also followed the example of other industries by employing comprehensive hands-on training and repeated practice in both real and simulated environments. When this kind of skills training is preceded by on-line learning of the knowledge that underlies those skills, the outcome can be excellent. But how do we know for sure? How can we deeply and comprehensively assess the skills we teach? It is actually quite difficult. In
