Most importantly, the film stresses the potential danger to the OOW of blindly trusting ECDIS; “it’s a computer, it must be right!”.
We discuss the procedures necessary for safe navigation – continually confirming that “ECDIS is correct!”
- The DVD also includes a series of five checklists and cards that crew can print for use onboard:
- GNSS (GPS) failure checklist
- ECDIS failure checklist
- Watch handover checklist
- Primary ECDIS management card
- Secondary ECDIS management card
This film is an invaluable training resource whether you’re new to ECDIS or you already have experience of the technology. The message is the same:
“ECDIS training is about more than just knowing where the menus are; it’s about knowing where YOU are.”
