Electronic charts are becoming an important part of navigation at sea and is used by shipboard personnel who are responsible for navigation and passage planning. From 2012 ECDIS will be mandatory for the carriage on SOLAS vessels.
Automatic identification systems (AIS) are designed to be capable of providing information about the ship to other ships and to coastal authorities automatically.
ECDIS and AIS courses have to be booket together.
This course intends to provide the knowledge, skills and understanding of Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) for personnel who will be in charge of a navigational watch on vessels equipped with ECDIS. The training comprises all aspects relevant to safety, and aims beyond the use of operational controls.
