ECDIS On-Board Familiarisation
The course has been designed for candidates who have completed ECDIS generic training and now require onboard familiarisation training on their installed equipment. It has been designed for officers in charge of a Navigational watch, for experienced officers and other persons with navigational responsibilities.
The course is conducted on the vessel’s ECDIS terminal. The course consists of a series of familiarisation exercises, where the instructor demonstrates and guides where necessary. Where knowledge of the ECDIS exists already, the exercises test user knowledge to a high degree. An assessment is conducted on completion of the exercises to test the knowledge gained. A certificate is issued on completion of the course stating that familiarisation training has been conducted on the specified ECDIS make and model. In summary, the course consists of the following:
- Familiarisation exercises
- Suitable for those with no experience of their ECDIS
- Suitable for testing those with experience of their ECDIS
- System specific certificate
We can offer familiarisation training on a number of different makes and models, such as:
- Transas Navi-Sailor 3000, 4000
- JRC JAN-701/901M, JAN-701/901B, JAN-2000
