About Us :
At KARCO we create 3D Animated Marine Safety & Operation Training videos that overcome language and cultural barriers by digitally animating accidents and illustrating how to avoid them. 3D animation captures the imagination and ingrains concepts with ease. The current generation of seafarers certainly enjoy our futuristic and fresh perspective towards training.
KARCO provides innovative training methods to shipping companies globally based on the decades of sea-faring experience of its founder Cpt. Diwan. In Greece and Cyprus, we are proud to have been chosen by Thenamaris, TMS Tankers/Cardiff, Euronav, Bernhard Schulte, Interorient, Pantheon and many more. Worldwide KARCO has been serving thousands of ships for more than 250 companies since 2004. We are pleased to announce the recent opening of our Athens office to best serve the needs of our clients in Greece and Cyprus.

TrACE – Training Analysis Crew Engagement
The assessment modules of our associated Learning Management System TrACE ensure comprehensive learning that is meticulously documented and displayed to allow for 3 levels of engagement with Company Admin,Vessel Admin and the Crew itself. In brief, TrACEgives a complete overview of current training status and its dynamic content can be continually revised to incorporate company circulars, new learning procedures and regulations.Unique to TrACE is that your company can add an unlimited amount of own content and assess crew on same.
Three levels of engagement with TrACE :
- The Company Admin through Key Performance Indicators views:
a) Summary of all vessels
b) Overall percentage on vessel-wise performance
c) Can easily add new training content
- The Vessel Admin can efficiently assess and follow the training status of the vessel and its crew to ensure they are up to date with their training.
- The Crew can view and take assessments on KARCO videos and other content that is assigned to them by the company. In addition, each crew member is kept informed of the training they must complete and by when this training is to be performed.
