5 day ECDIS Generic course
3 day HELM Operational course
For HELM Operational Course:
Learners following an MNTB/MCA approved programme are eligible to undertake this course after their first seagoing phase. Learners following the experienced seafarer route to MCA certification shall meet the minimum seagoing service requirements for the issue of a first CoC.
For Generic ECDIS Course:
ECDIS Ltd is not teaching trainees to navigate using ECDIS. It is teaching them to use ECDIS in order to navigate safely. Therefore, we require the trainee to have basic navigation knowledge and to understand what a navigation watch entails. We believe that traditional navigation techniques are still relevant in a digital world so we teach the use of existing navigation skills on an ECDIS system.
