FURUNO Accredited Another Training Center

Press Release
Monday, February 25, 2013

VERITAS Maritime Training Center  in Manila has joined the FURUNO NavSkills network of training centers.



Since December 2012, VERITAS MTC has provided FURUNO type specific ECDIS training to navigators under the FURUNO NavSkills training contract.



Under the NavSkills agreement VERITAS MTC will accommodate a total of six training workstations: Four ECDIS FEA-2107 workstations and two next generation, state-of-the-art FMD-3200 workstations with three training instructors certified by FURUNO to conduct FURUNO type specific ECDIS training.



VERITAS MTC is a part of Epsilon Hellas (Overseas) Ltd. and was established in January 2012. The company is engaged in providing training to Philippine shipboard personnel on seagoing vessels.



More specifically, the training center is committed to provide quality training programs, facilities, instructors and other necessary resources that will ensure skill advancement of maritime professionals.



Under the NavSkills contract, the training center is able to provide modern, state-of-the-art training equipment with constantly updated learning content and software to comply with current training standards and regulations. The type specific ECDIS training is provided in accordance with the standard set by FURUNO, which is in compliance with currently known requirements from various flag states and other stakeholders.



The NavSkills training concept ensures that the training course is conducted in the same way, with the same content and duration and using the same teaching methods as employed by FURUNO in FURUNO’s own training centers, FURUNO INS Training Center, in Denmark and Singapore. This way the ship owner can use any accredited NavSkills training centre without having to worry about the quality of the training provided.



It is the belief of FURUNO that the best training outcome is derived from classroom training provided by training centres where the trainees have the opportunity of having direct two-way communication with the instructor, who can guide and advise them on the various topics.


With the addition of this new NavSkills training facility, FURUNO is able to provide type specific ECDIS training in Germany, Turkey, Greece, Singapore, India, The Philippines, China and Denmark.    



Further, FURUNO is currently working on further expanding the training network by establishing similar co-operations with training centers in the USA, Europe, Africa and Asia.
