Northern Ireland-based marine navigation data and service provider Todd (formerly Todd Chart Agency) has announced its partnership with one of the world’s top ECDIS training providers in a move that will see the company increase its ECDIS offering and continue to position itself as a world-leading navigation data specialist.
Todd is working with Southampton-based specialist ECDIS training organisation ECDIS Ltd to offer a Flag-State approved ECDIS training course to all of its customers, either at ECDIS Ltd’s purpose-built facility in the UK, or at any location globally to suit individual vessel requirements.
The world-renowned five day ECDIS Ltd course is designed for candidates seeking certification as officers in charge of a navigational watch and for experienced mariners and other persons with navigational responsibilities, such as pilots.
As well as the five day course, Todd and ECDIS Ltd can also provide a full range of ECDIS training, including one day introductions and bespoke packages for Marine Inspectors and Port Authorities who require ‘pocket cribs’ for use when quality controlling ECDIS onboard ship.
Capt William Todd from Todd said: “Our partnership with ECDIS Ltd allows us to offer our current and new customers an industry-approved ECDIS training course to complement the extensive range of electronic charting products we offer.”
“At Todd, we have a team of navigational data specialists and ECDIS experts, all of whom work closely with each customer to ensure that they understand the requirements of ECDIS carriage and that they are fully prepared ahead of the ECDIS mandate.”
Todd’s product range includes ECDIS hardware from a number of world-leading manufacturers including Maris and PC Maritime and a global portfolio of electronic charts and digital publications including the full range of Admiralty digital and paper products.
Todd also offers a full, global, IMO-compliant range of digital products and systems, including e-Navigator, and is the UKHO’s fourth largest UK Distributor.
