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.
