time. It follows the IMO model courses and comprises content unique to NYK
Group, including NYK’s safety culture, operational standards, current business
conditions, and history. Use of the cargo handling simulator is also included.
Before this training was made available, participants would need to travel to
the NYKSM training center in Singapore for simulator training. However, a
cloud-based cargo-handling simulator now makes training in an online
environment possible. All content, including cloud-based cargo-handling
simulator training and lectures, can now be provided online in compliance with
the IMO model courses. This has made it possible for NYK Group seafarers aboard
LNG carriers and oil tankers to complete training without having to travel to
online ship handling training in September 2020, and afterward added online
cargo-handling training for LPG carriers and car carriers. The company is
currently working to utilize all resources to introduce online and e-learning
options to all types of training. The NYK Group will continue its efforts to
train seafarers even during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the continuing
necessary transport of food, supplies, and energy resources.
On February 3, NYK
released the NYK Group ESG Story which aims to further accelerate the
integration of ESG into the company’s management strategy. This online
cargo-handling training achieves this ambition. To strongly promote ESG
management, NYK is encouraging new value creation as a sustainable solution
