Target group

All those who need training in TECDIS ECDIS, i.e. navigators, VTS operators, pilots and employees at shipping offices with responsibility for operating vessels.

Course relevance

Regulation I/14, paragraph 1.5 of the STCW Convention, as well as sections 6.3 and 6.5 of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code, requires companies to ensure seafarers are provided with familiarization training. A ship safety management system should include familiarization with the ECDIS equipment fitted, including its backup arrangements, sensors and related peripherals. To assist Member Governments, Parties to the STCW Convention, companies and seafarers, a record of such familiarization should be provided. This course covers the familiarisation training for TECDIS ECDIS.
