Northrop Grumman offers DVD training packages for nav. systems

(CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – APRIL 29, 2008) – Northrop Grumman Corporation has launched a new eLearning initiative to support its Sperry Marine Voyage Management System (VMS) ship navigation software.
Sperry Marine, a business unit of Northrop Grumman, has produced a series of DVDs containing video training lessons covering various aspects of VMS operation and maintenance. The eLearning DVDs condense several days of normal classroom course material into a few hours of concentrated video instruction, which may be used for introductory or refresher training aboard ship.
“At Sperry Marine, we have been creating high-quality training DVDs for internal distribution to our worldwide field offices to ensure that our service personnel are kept current on new product installation and maintenance procedures,” said Michael Hughes, manager of product support and training for Sperry Marine. “The internal success of these DVD-based training videos has led us to expand this eLearning initiative toward customer-focused training packages.”
The eLearning DVDs will supplement Sperry Marine’s traditional VMS courses, which are taught in the company’s state-of-the-art training and simulator facilities in Charlottesville, Va., New Malden, United Kingdom and Hamburg, Germany.
