ECDIS Type Specific
IMO Model Course 1.27
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.

“Excellent venue and facilities”
” The facilities and building set up is excellent, all staff are friendly and happy to help with anything. “
The staff here a very knowledgable and I am sure we will be using these experts opinions in the future when making decisions on type approval testing of ECDIS systems in the future.
As I already used the Kelvin Hughes ECDIS before, this was not so much news for me. I’m very pleased with the organisation and service of the training centre.
‘ A fabulous facility with up to date equipment and providing first class lectures and hands on training. The best part of the course was the important operational user ‘hints and tips’ and important points to check. Next trip I will be setting up a new Furuno system and Neil, The instructors, help will make me a lot more confident. Thank you! ‘
