ECDIS Ltd | Delivering a Full Spectrum of Deck and Navigation Courses
With the introduction and approval of the new Instructor Training IMO course, ECDIS Ltd now offers one of the most extensive training portfolios across the Deck and Navigation spectrum.
[Whiteley, Hampshire September 2015] ECDIS Ltd is the only private training academy to offer 30 different courses, covering so much more than just ECDIS.
ECDIS Ltd’s course portfolio has significantly grown and now, with the completion and MCA approval of the latest IMO 6.09 Instructor Training advanced course, ECDIS Ltd teaches 30 deck and navigation courses.
Taking a snapshot into a typical training schedule, ECDIS Ltd has delivered Bridge Team Management, Bridge Resource Management, HELM, ECDIS Generic and Type Specific on Sperry, Transas and Furuno, the 6.09 Instructor Training and also the Inspectors Course; all from our facility near Southampton as well as Singapore and all within the last 3 weeks.
Other courses that are available are: Navigational Audits & Investigations, Anti Piracy Maritime Security, Rule of the Road, NEBOSH, MIST, Helmsman Training, Bridge Watch Keeping & Collision Avoidance, WECDIS and Type Specific ECDIS also for Kelvin Hughes, OSI and JRC and more.
Mark Broster, MD at ECDIS Ltd said “A lot of people still believe that we only offer the 5 Day ECDIS Generic course, and while this is how ECDIS Ltd started, we have become so much more. We now offer more deck & navigation courses week in, week out than anyone else, as well as branching out into simulator building and 3D creation of ports and vessels, all from our facility in Fareham. It’s fantastic.”
ECDIS Ltd’s Training & Production Manager, Robyn Harrigan, points out “Training is our everyday operation, and we’ll continue to improve and add to our training portfolio, but it actually counts for just 2.4% of ECDIS Ltd’s turn over. Utilising our expertise has meant we have been able to also offer consultancy, advice, guidance and support on e-navigation, simulation and training to other members and organisations within our industry.”
