VIDEOTEL offers its education and training programs through a web site known as the Videotel Academy (VA). This is a learning management system which has been specifically designed by Videotel for use in the maritime sector. Effective crew training and management solutions in a range of formats and languages are the foundations of Videotel services. The company, part of KVH, has been dedicated to producing comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date products since its founding in 1973.
Videotel began making the training products for the marine industry in 1973, at a time when major shipping companies needed to improve their on board training and IMCO, the forerunner of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), wanted to see high quality training materials supplied to maritime colleges, especially in the developing countries.
