ECDIS Ltd celebrates delivering its 10th Management of ECDIS course to the Irish Naval Service
ECDIS Ltd recently delivered their 10th Management of ECDIS course to senior members of the Irish Naval Service as the start of further cooperation between the two organizations. ECDIS Ltd’s Management of ECDIS course is designed for advanced and experienced users of ECDIS, or those who are now in a position of quality controlling the standards of their fleets’ navigation and making purchasing decisions. The course has proven very successful over the years in providing `top level` information to Fleet Managers looking to make the most efficient transition to Digital Navigation.
Mark Broster, delivers the modules on post training risk assessment, and the varied chart selection options that are available.
Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd says,
“It was a pleasure to work with a military organisation who are looking to transfer their traditional skills into the digital age. It is our aim to not only help take their understanding of `wider` ECDIS aspects to the next level, but also to help take them through every aspect of the transition – from procedures, to charting options, to equipment. It is great to see that the Irish Naval Service are seeking to take their ECDIS knowledge to the highest and safest level, by utilising ECDIS Ltd as part of their training solution, and as their consultant”.
Lt Paul Hegarty, Navigation Standards and Database Officer for the Irish Naval Service adds,
“What came across during the course was the depth of knowledge the team at ECDIS Ltd. have on all navigation systems and charting options available to mariners. The course offered a valuable insight into the management and quality control procedures required in implementing new navigation systems within an organisation”.
