A SUPERYACHT academy has become the first education establishment of its kind to launch a mobile learning platform for its students.

Warsash Superyacht Academy launched the learning app to support the training of its superyacht crew. The academy is part of Southampton Solent University and teaches commercial yacht and engineering courses.

The app can be accessed remotely and will be free to download from iTunes from today.

Lars Lippuner, business development manager at Warsash Superyacht Academy, said: ‘With its modern look, feel and ease of use, our students will benefit greatly.

‘The ability for students to constantly receive updated material is invaluable and it removes the need for them to carry course material with them while they are travelling and working globally.

‘For almost 70 years Warsash Maritime Academy has been a world-class provider of maritime education, this app will continue to enhance our reputation as a world leader.’
