Software training courses

Teaching you the ropes through virtual training, classroom courses and blended learning

EIVA offers a variety of software training courses designed to enhance maritime professionals' understanding of NaviSuite, as well as improve their competences with the various tools and features of the range of NaviSuite products.

Software courses are delivered by expert instructors and are run according to a fixed schedule/calendar (detailed below), with training courses being conducted on a virtual platform, as well as at various locations around the world, including EIVA headquarters in Denmark.

Alongside fixed training courses, we also offer the opportunity to arrange customised training courses tailored to your business needs. These courses can be run both virtually and with an instructor physically at hand, depending on your requirements and the given possibilities. It is thus possible to build a course entirely around your requirements, allowing for selection of specific course contents, duration, time and location.

Any other requirements you have, we will be more than happy to hear about and work towards accommodating. If you are interested in this option, please get in touch.

Virtual training courses 

EIVA's virtual training courses are based on a mixture of eLearning and virtual training via Microsoft Teams. The most basic parts of the training curriculum are covered by modules on the eLearning site, while the virtual classroom part goes more into depth in relation to details of advanced subjects, hands-on training and offers a direct and individual dialogue with the instructor.
