July 25, 2023

We are proud to announce that Optimism has received the Silver Award for Best eLearning Development Company in the prestigious 2015 LearnX Impact Awards. The focus of this award is on an eLearning development company that’s been significantly involved in the creation of a ‘high quality industry specific project using expert talent, innovative practices, technical capability and support mechanisms’.

Partnering with Coastguard Boating Education (CBE), Optimism created a practical, engaging and interactive series of eLearning modules which transformed CBE’s existing Day Skipper course into Day Skipper Online.

We are delighted that we were given the opportunity to really push the boundaries on this project and delivered something CBE are really proud of.

“…The end result (Day Skipper Online) is engaging, informative and interactive, and from the moment it was launched has been a big hit…”- Neil Murray (CBE)

The Day Skipper Online programme we created for CBE is truly unique, unlike any other project we’ve ever seen, and it even gained NZQA accreditation in record time.

“We are excited to receive this Award for Best Learning Services – eLearning Development Company, in conjunction with our awesome client Coastguard Boating Education. This Award is testament to the outstanding result and our strong working relationship with such a great client as CBE.” – Sussan Ockwell (Optimism)

The LearnX Foundation champions innovation and progression in workforce. The annual awards are a forum to celebrate the expertise and success of individuals and organisations in the learning sector.

We look forward to raising the bar even higher with the next set of modules for CBE!
