ECDIS ltd has been one of the better course establishments I have been too. The course was well run and very informative. The course leader was knowledgeable and very keen for the students to learn.
The course was very good. Informative and relevant. The facility is fit for purpose, clean and fresh modern environment.
All staff have been very polite, welcoming and professional.
Fantastic team, made to feel welcome at all times. Excellent training facility. Keep up the good work.
” It is thoroughly refreshing to visit a training provider that has captured what customers really want……excellent facilities and equipment, quality complimentary refreshments and snacks but at the same time, and most importantly, delivering a quality course with passion, therefore delivering value for money overall. There are too many providers around nowadays that are quite happy to take people’s money but deliver a sub standard course and facilities and with little knowledge and understanding. “
“Good coffee! Great being hands on with the equipment, and the range of manufacturers / systems available to play with. A worthwhile week being back at school. Might have to find an excuse to come back… “
” ECDIS Ltd is an extremely well run business. The standard of training and equipment is second to none and the course is delivered in friendly and informative way. Would definitely recommend to others. “

” Probably one of the courses and centres that I’ve enjoyed the most “
” The facilities at ECDIS Ltd are excellent and all personnel extremely helpful. “
” Having used Transas through my whole career so far, the course really made me understand what the program was capable of and will make my further interactions with it easier and safer. Highly recommended to anyone using any ECDIS system. “
” Fully informative and defiantly required for an understanding of operating ECDIS systems on board. I can now leave the course feeling confident in not only using the system well and safety but also imparting the wealth of knowledge taken on board to other crew members in the future. “
” A different approach to adult learning but it contributed to the whole experience making it more welcoming and enjoyable. “
” Walking away wiser and safer seafarer! Don’t have one bad point . The facilities, course and instruction was great! “

In order to provide you with the best possible training solutions, we offer our Generic ECDIS course at any location of your choice. ECDIS Ltd will provide the training laptops with the ECDIS software, as well as a fully qualified instructor for the 5 day Generic ECDIS mobile course.
The course is evenly split between presentations to build the foundation of knowledge and practical exercises on actual ECDIS equipment to cement understanding. We hold a wide range of different manufacturers’ equipment in our facility including Transas Navi-Sailor 4000, JRC Jan 2000 and OSI ECPINS.
ECDIS Ltd is not teaching trainees to navigate using ECDIS. It is teaching them to use ECDIS in order to navigate safely. Therefore, we require the trainee to have basic navigation knowledge and to understand what a
navigation watch entails. We believe that traditional navigation techniques are still relevant in a digital world so we teach the use of existing navigation skills on an ECDIS system.
All of our trainers are specialist navigators, highly experienced in the practical use of ECDIS. Combined, our trainers have taught over 1000 mariners. Course can be delivered anywhere in the world. We are able to visit you and conduct ‘in house’ training on your own systems, ensuring the highest level of understanding for you and your team. The flexibility of our training means that we can train you on the smallest ECDIS system for yachts, through to large groups of merchant ship ECDIS systems with the same high level of professionalism and integrity.
IMO Model Course 1.27
The course has been designed for candidates who have completed ECDIS generic training and now require equipment specific training. It has been designed for officers in charge of a navigational watch, for experienced officers and other persons with navigational responsibilities.
The course is split between presentations to familiarise the trainee with the menu structure and practical exercises on the actual ECDIS equipment to cement understanding. We hold a wide range of different manufacturer’s equipment in our facility including:
Those attending the course should have conducted a generic 5 day IMO 1.27 ECDIS course. They should have experience in performing chartwork and should be able to practice all usual tasks concerning standard navigational procedures and equipment. They should know about the functions and limitations of other navigational equipment. ECDIS is not aiming to teach trainees to navigate using ECDIS. It is teaching them to use ECDIS in order to navigate safely. Therefore, we require the trainee to have the basic navigation knowledge and that they understand what a navigation watch entails. We at Ecdis Ltd are of the opinion that traditional navigation techniques are still relevant in a digital world and as such we will teach the use of existing navigation skills on an ECDIS system.
Your training is important to us here at ECDIS Ltd and because of that we have ensured there are no minimum booking numbers for any of our type specific courses. All type specific training can be scheduled and conducted for one student. Classes are limited to 2 trainees per terminal in most circumstances. Maximum numbers do apply and vary across different manufacturers – please contact us for further details.
All of our trainers are specialist navigators that are highly experienced in the practical use of ECDIS. Combined, our trainers have taught over 1000 mariners.
