22-24.06.2015 - STC-Group organises pilot class 'LNG as Cargo' in inland waterway transport


LNG Logo colourAfter successfully carrying out two pilot courses focusing on personnel involved in terminal operations and bunker operations, STC-Group is organising on 22-24 June 2015, in Rotterdam, another pilot class for personnel which are (or will start in the future) working on inland vessels transporting LNG.

Within the LNG Masterplan Rhine-Main-Danube project, a competency framework regarding the training and development of personnel working with LNG has been developed within the sub-activity dealing with ‘Education and Training Requirements’. This framework serves as a basis for lesson materials and other didactical tools to provide hands-on experience during training. STC-Group has developed these materials and the next step is to carry out a pilot class to validate the training and receive feedback from stakeholders to improve the course.

The course starts with several e-learning modules to cover the basic knowledge regarding LNG. Via an online learning management system, these modules can be done at a convenient time and place. Next are lessons in classrooms, followed by sessions using simulators and practical training facilities.

STC-Group would like to invite all project partners to join this pilot class free of charge with max. 2 participants per partner. Please note: the class will be given in Dutch!
