Bluedrop Wins Contract With the Royal Canadian Navy’s End-to-End Learning Services for the Long-Term Maritime Warfare and Seamanship Training Development.

Bluedrop Performance Learning and its subsidiary Bluedrop Training & Simulation have successfully bid on the End-to-End Learning Services contract for Maritime Warfare and Seamanship training and development for the Department of National Defence. The contract is valued at $6.7 million over two years, with options to extend for three additional one-year periods.

The services will be delivered to the Royal Canadian Navy’s Naval Personnel Training Group (NPTG) as part of the Future Naval Training Systems Strategy. Bluedrop will augment the NPTG internal capabilities to include timely design, production, delivery and implementation of innovative, practical eLearning training solutions that leverages state-of-the-art multi-media/IT technologies and educational techniques.

The services will be delivered by the Bluedrop naval team using technical resources from its Halifax office. Bluedrop is a supplier of leading-edge training to the latest Naval programs including, the Royal Canadian Navy’s Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS) Program and the Canadian Coast Guard’s Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels (OFSV) Program.

“Our Naval practice has been a very successful part of our business over the past number of years working both directly with the Navy and through various vendors to the Navy,” said Jean-Claude Siew, Bluedrop, Vice-President Technology and Simulation. “This is an especially important win for Bluedrop as we will now be working hand in hand with the NPTG team and leadership over the coming years to contribute to the Future Naval Training Systems Strategy at a crucial time as the Navy expands its fleet and training capabilities.”
