The Captains (Communication and Practical Training Applied in Nautical Studies) product, a result of the EU Leonardo Transfer of Innovation Captains Project, was developed following a language needs analysis of seafarers and Maritime English teachers worldwide. The Captains product contributes to an enhanced safety at sea culture by providing a means for seafarers to improve their English language communication skills.

The Captains courses comprise a number of 2D and 3D simulations which were designed on the basis of the analysis of real life accidents and incidents caused by communication failures at sea. The advanced e-learning platform, KWEBO, provides an interactive learning environment for all seafarers, with a range of community tools for collaborative learning.
