MSI Norfolk Opens New Labs

Wednesday, March 12, 2003
In January 2003 MarineSafety International's Norfolk Center began training in its new Radar/ARPA and ECDIS Labs. The new facilities include a three station Radar and ARPA lab which was purchased from Buffalo Computer Graphics and an 8 station ECDIS lab comprised of networked PC's which can host any one of several ECDIS programs including ECPINS and TRANSAS, among others. This expansion was undertaken to meet emerging U.S. Navy requirements for advanced radar and electronic navigation training. The lab will enable MSI Norfolk to teach ARPA and ECDIS courses without impacting ship simulator training. Courses offered include MSI's USCG approved 4 day ARPA, 5 day ECDIS, 5 day Original Radar, and Radar Recertification courses as well as combined ARPA and ECDIS courses tailored to U.S. Navy requirements.
