Optimarin Academy

Optimarin offers a complete e-learning course hosted on our cloud-based OptiLearn portal.


Our cloud based e-learning portal OptiLearn hosts a complete e-learning course consisting of several sections including history, legislation, system components, ballasting principles, actual operation procedures for ballasting, deballasting, stripping of ballast tanks, bypassing the system. In addition, there are sections on maintenance and troubleshooting. The course can be taken separately or in conjunction with the other programs outlined above. The course concludes with an online exam and if passed a certificate will be issued to the user.

Crew training

Certified Optimarin engineers provide onsite training of ship crews in connection with commissioning of the Optimarin BWTS, or separately organized as requested by customers. Optimarin’s experience is that the program is very effective when used in combination with the e-learning course.

Certification of service engineers

Optimarin provides comprehensive training of engineers at our head office and at our service partners world-wide to ensure that commissioning and service is performed in accordance with rules, regulations and system requirements. Engineers completing this course will be an “Optimarin certified” engineer.

Customised customer training

We can provide customised training courses to customers ranging from e-learning to fully comprehensive programs (see above). The purpose of such training is to ensure that ship owners/managers with e.g. fleet agreements have a good understanding and overview of both the system, its operating, maintenance and training requirements. This will ensure a good user experience for the operators of the system.
