ECDIS Ltd Type Specific and Generic ECDIS Training Combined
UK based navigation training and consultancy company ECDIS Ltd have delivered ECDIS Type Specific and on-board familiarisation training to hundreds of students. The company is now able to offer Nautical Institute approved Type Specific Certificates to students on completion of their generic MCA and DNV approved 1.27 ECDIS Courses, following accreditation from the Nautical Institute.
ECDIS Ltd’s Type Specific training was accredited initially in April 2011 and has been in high demand since its launch. New courses on different manufacturers’ systems are being developed by the company all the time to meet the huge demands seen for Type Specific training since the release of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s Marine Information Notice 442 published in August last year, and similar notices worldwide.

The Nautical Institute’s accredited Type Specific course is normally a one day (8 hours) course and includes presentation and practical exercises to ensure that the trainee gets comprehensive training on their system of choice. ECDIS Ltd currently provides training on OSI, Kelvin Hughes, JRC, Transas, PC Maritime, Simrad and Totem Plus, and Tokyo Keiki.
This new course allows the mariner to receive 2 approved certificates on one course whilst still meeting the high standards required by the Nautical Institute and the Maritime Coast Guard Agency.
Joe Sloly, Customer Development Manager at ECDIS Ltd says, “The combined Generic and Type Specific ECDIS course is a cost effective and productive way to ensure mariners are trained to an excellent standard in the use of their ECDIS equipment.”
ECDIS Ltd also delivers on-board familiarisation courses, which is a certificated portable course, brought to the mariners on their vessel; utilising their vessel’s installed ECDIS equipment on a range of additional ECDIS systems including MARIS.
