ClassNK has certified the Type Specific ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) training course provided by Iino Marine Service Busan Co., Ltd., an affiliate of Iino Marine Service Co., Ltd. ClassNK Executive Vice President Koichi Fujiwara presented the certificate to Capt. Shigeru Nemoto, President of Iino Marine Service Co., Ltd. at a special ceremony held at ClassNK’s Head Office on April 24,  2013.


While new amendments to STCW convention require Generic ECDIS Training for masters and deck officers onboard ships with ECDIS systems, some oil majors and Port State Control (PSC) authorities now request evidence of Type Specific ECDIS training during vetting and PSC inspections, in accordance with the ISM code. As oil major, PSC authorities, and many flag states are now requiring Type Specific ECDIS training, proper ECDIS training is an increasingly important issue for shipowners and operators.


To address these new requirements, Iino Marine Service Co., Ltd., in cooperation with ECDIS system manufacturer Japan Radio Co., Ltd., established the ECDIS training course at Busan-based Iino Marine Service Busan Co., Ltd., and turned to ClassNK to ensure that the new training meets the high level required by the maritime industry. ClassNK’s certification confirms that the training center’s ECDIS training is carried out in accordance with ClassNK’s independently developed rules and maritime education standards.
