GENERIC ECDIS TRAINING
Generic ECDIS training is based on IMO Model Course 1.27 and approved by the relevant Maritime Administration. The required course length is 40 hours and is delivered by colleges, training centres or mobile training company.
TYPE-SPECIFIC ECDIS TRAINING
Type- specific ECDIS training is given by the ECDIS manufacturer or his authorized representative. Also known as ECDIS Familiarisation, the regulatory requirements are covered by the ISM Code (including sections 6.3 & 6.5) and the STCW Convention Regulation I/14, which require a company to establish procedures to ensure that new personnel and personnel transferred to new assignments related to safety and protection of the environment are given proper familiarisation with their duties.
ECDIS TRAINING NETWORK
For colleges already equipped with a desktop or full mission bridge simulator, we offer a networkable ECDIS system which interfaces to any bridge simulator via standard NMEA connection to deliver the practical elements of IMO Model Course 1.27.
