K-Sim eLearning Solutions

Today’s knowledge society requires flexible learning environments which can adapt to rapidly changing training objectives and peoples preferences for the way to interact and get information. Through the open digital platform kognifai, Kongsberg Digital will enable easy and cost-efficient access to simulation exercises regardless of where and when the education or training takes place.
It’s a known fact that training improves business performance, profit and the attitude of staff. KONGSBERG has for 50 years developed and provided market leading simulators offering realistic and advanced training, promoting skills and safety at sea. In cooperation with our clients, we are constantly adapting to changing training needs.

Recently, we have started a project developing K-Sim eLearning solutions, which will be available online through the open ecosystem, kognifai. This sophisticated simulator solutions will enable students, maritime training institutes and ship owners to get online cloud-based access to simulation exercises as a time- and cost-efficient supplement to classroom training.
