NTTA is a professional training academy based in the North of the Netherlands, in Groningen. NTTA is one of the leading schools when it comes to Safety and Safety training in the maritime sector. It has been accredited by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science as the only non-funded vocational school within the maritime sector in the Netherlands. NTTA offers a broad range of courses for different kinds of seafarers. Several courses are aimed at engineers on board.
Spot On Learning and NTTA are now together producing a series of 'engine room communication' videos that contain the technical English that is important on board and in communication with professionals on shore. The course is being produced in response to requests by several worldwide players in the maritime industry. NTTA will use the ERC course in its blended program(s).
Below an introduction video about the engine room, as it is already used in an existing maritime English course by Spot On Learning on the EnglishCentral platform. This is just to give you an idea of the video quality and the online learning method. EnglishCentral has three different learning modes: watch, learn and speak. Extra quizes help expand and test the vocabulary of a student. Participants work on their vocabulary and pronunciation, among other things. Results and progress can be monitored closely, participants receive personal feedback to help them improve continuously. Most of the time students can learn by themselves, online, at any time and in any place that they is convenient for them. Coaches monitor progress and give support when needed, by chat and email. NTTA will also combine this material with existing courses and training products.
