The eMaritime Group has just launched their new 4.0 ACAT module to ‘bolt-on’ to there already comprehensive Annual Competency assurance Training Course available at: www.emaritimetraining.com
ACAT is used daily by shipping companies around the world. It gives them an affordable ECDIS training assurance tool that ensures the competency of all officers with navigational duties and directly relates to the 2018 inspection regime – all at an average cost of £8 per officer. Please feel free to watch the you-tube video of an entire on-line course (which can also be downloaded and completed `off-line` for ships without internet) at the above link or the eMaritime Training website.
Onboard ECDIS Instructor Neil Savage from ECDIS Ltd said “We have seen a huge rise in the number of companies signing up to ACAT. Not enough of us know what changed in the recent updates to ECDIS. The new 4.0 module has proved that all officers who have undergone the course have a significantly increased awareness of what changes came to presentation library 4.0. The feedback shows they have a better understanding of the new ECDIS display and now consider themselves better prepared for future audits and inspections.”
