ECDIS Ltd have installed Navmaster ECDIS in their e-Navigation centre. The system, built by Plymouth based PC Maritime, will be used to deliver generic IMO 1.27 and Type Specific ECDIS training. The installation of the equipment not only serves to enhance ECDIS training by providing visibility of various different systems currently in use at sea, but also allows PC Maritime to showcase their excellent product.
PC Maritime Navmaster ECDIS takes its place in the e-Navigation Centre
Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd says, “We have been working successfully with PC Maritime on our mobile 1.27 ECDIS course for almost a year now. The Navmaster software is capable and intuitive, and it is a real pleasure to take delivery of a full terminal at our training facility in Southampton. The presence of the system will allow us to combine generic training with provision of type specific ECDIS training for Navmaster customers. We wish to continue our partnership and hope to receive further terminals in future as a platform for MCA accredited training.”
David Edmonds, Managing Director of PC Maritime adds, “We’re very pleased to be able to offer our customers combined ECDIS training delivered by ECDIS Ltd staff. In addition, we’ve nearly completed a Navmaster type specific training CD Rom which will allow customers to carry out familiarisation training in their own time and will complement the formal courses provided in the e-Navigation Centre.”
