Scotland’s leading digital learning and assessment specialist, eCom Learning Solutions, has developed bespoke eLearning materials to help make offshore wind turbine maintenance technicians’ jobs safer – especially when they are working on rough seas.

eCom has researched and produced these eLearning materials for the engineering innovator, Pict Offshore, which develops, builds, sells, and supports new access, lifting, and height safety solutions for the offshore wind energy sector. Founded in April 2019, Pict is part-owned by Ørsted, the world’s largest offshore wind developer.

To increase the adoption of its innovative new product – a laser-guided, active heave-compensated personnel hoist called the GetUp Safe (GUS) system – Pict wants its customers to realize the system’s benefits as quickly as possible. Moreover, since Pict operates in a global industry, it needs a cost-effective way to make this training available in any location and at any time.

“Pict needs to ensure that GUS users and operators understand the system’s key functions and operating modes before they attend a practical training session,” explained Susan Gearing, eCom Learning Solutions’ senior energy sector specialist. “This initial training needs to be delivered consistently every time and cover important safety information, for both normal and emergency situations.

“Pict also wanted to include an end-of-training assessment to check each user had assimilated the information and was ready to progress to practical training.”

Believing that a digital solution offered the best platform for this training, Pict approached eCom for help with bringing its vision to life.

Working with Pict’s subject matter experts, eCom created eLearning materials that are accessible via a wide range of devices. In addition, eCom developed assessment materials to confirm that participants had understood the training content and were ready to move to the practical training course. To ensure the process’ integrity, these assessments use questions chosen at random by the system.

To deliver the eLearning materials and monitor their usage, Pict uses eCom’s cloud-based, learning management system (LMS), eNetLearn.

“The eNetLearn-delivered bespoke eLearning and assessments, providing Pict’s customers around the world the consistent and accurate training they need, is helping these customers reduce time-to-competency,” said Susan Gearing.

“So, Pict’s customers are introducing this game-changing technology to their offshore wind operations and realizing the benefits of the GUS system – increased safety and reduced costs – more quickly.”
