Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd, says,

“It represents another milestone in our company that we have partnered with such a large, well respected and truly global ECDIS manufacturer.  However, our aim remains the same, to represent all ECDIS manufacturers in order to facilitate the highest standards of ECDIS training, whether it is generic 1.27 or type specific training both statically and portably worldwide.  With our reputation as the leading authority on training and consultancy in the still-emerging and complicated world of ECDIS, being the appointed JRC training partner will undoubtedly benefit the mariner at sea.”
