Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd says,
“It was a pleasure to work with experienced navigators eager to transfer their skills into the digital age. It is our aim to help take their level of ECDIS knowledge to the next level. We have found that many fleets both commercial and military proudly promote the idea of high standards of navigation training. It is great to see that the Singapore Navy are seeking to take their ECDIS knowledge to the highest and safest level, by utilising ECDIS Ltd as part of their training solution.
LTC Terence Ho, Head of Sea Riding & Audit Branch for the Republic of Singapore Navy adds,
“Besides the excellent infrastructure and first-class set up, what impressed me most was the professionalism of the staff. In addition to the deep expertise and experience that one can only get from years of practical experience, their openness to share was a refreshing difference from many of the commercial ECDIS courses available.”
