ECDIS Operator Training
1 Transas Marine, Hamburg, Germany
ABSTRACT: An Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) is a highly advanced and powerful navigational aid, specifically designed for enhancing safety at sea. With the growing adoption of ECDIS (ECS) there is an increasing number of Officers who need to be trained in its use. Given the flexibility of the labor market, it is highly likely that Officers may arrive onboard a ship without experience or training. To adequately train responsible personnel, Transas has developed specialized ECDIS Operator Training Equipment. In the papers Jochen Rudolph focuses on the requirements set out by existing IMO regulations for ECDIS operators and outlines the distinctive features of the ECDIS Operator Training.
