Stcw electronic chart display information system (ecdis) generic and transas type specific - 3 days

Løbende optagelse

This course is approved by the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) and designed to meet the STCW requirements in the use of ECDIS, as revised by the 2010 Manila Amendments, specifically as these apply to Tables A-II/1, A-II/2 and A-II/3, and also to revised guidelines pertaining to training and assessment in the operational use of ECDIS in Table B-I (paragraphs 36 through 66). The purpose of this course is to provide the knowledge, skills and understanding of ECDIS and electronic charts to the thorough extent needed to safely navigate vessels whose primary means of navigation is ECDIS. Emphasis is on both the application and learning of ECDIS in a variety of underway contexts. The course is conducted on TRANSAS ECDIS Navi-Sailor 4000 and also fulfils the requirements of a TRANSAS type specific course. This results in two certificates being issued after completion of the course; a generic ECDIS Certificate (STCW 2010) and a Type Specific TRANSAS ECDIS Navi-Sailor 4000.
