About Op Koers! Maritiem
Op Koers! Maritiem has been conducting safety trainings for shipping personnel since 2009 and focusses on passenger shipping crewmembers. With an extensive service package, we deliver a total concept for safety on board, together with our sister organizations Marteq and Safe Ships. We have been certified as a training company by the representative of the Central Commission for Rhine Navigation (CCNR), the Human Environment & Transport Inspectorate (IL&T) and ISO 9001 2015. We guide crew to the required level of training by training them in a practice-oriented manner and are authorized to certify according to the Shipping Personnel Regulations (RSP) and examinate competencies under the guidelines of the ES-QIN.
Op Koers! Maritiem strives for efficiency in every area and never loses sight of the customer. By, among other things, applying customization, making an inventory of the individual training needs, close contact with the shipping companies and continuously improving the training offer, we keep the training content up-to-date and in accordance with the legal provisions at all times.
These continuous improvements have also resulted in the creation of the OK Academy. In this online environment, the students gain the theoretical knowledge individually, at their own pace and at a time of their own choosing before the on-board training, so that during the practical training on board the training time can be efficiently arranged by focusing on the practical actions and competences.
Our fully specialized instructors provide professional training on location according to the wishes of the shipping company, at any desired place and at a time designated by the customer. Only competent students will be certified so that safety on board is guaranteed and in the event of an emergency on board, well certified personnel act as adequate as possible to control a situation.
Because of our compact team with high flexibility, large numbers of students can be trained at various locations all over Europe at the same time. In order to do so, we have an extensive pool of instructors available. The training courses are mainly provided on board passenger ships. Many satisfied international customers and shipping companies know where to find us for a certification that is valid in all EU member states under both the Shipping Personnel Regulations (RSP) and ES-QIN.
Working area: Europe
Due to the international nature of shipping, our working area covers almost all of Western Europe and part of Eastern Europe.
Because of our integration into the inland navigation industry, we closely monitor and keep up-to-date our knowledge about the legal requirements and regulations in the EU member states and first-hand information about the legislation is at our disposal. Both our team and instructor network have a great knowledge of languages. These two characteristics ensure that we can operate effortlessly in all European countries.
Of course, not every country is nearby. However, due to our large customer base, we know how to keep our costs low and attractive with efficient planning and transport combinations.
