Press Release
Wednesday, September 12, 2012

ECDIS Ltd included in MCA Training Provider List.


The sad consequences of the grounding of ships have been all too commonly seen on television screens world-wide. Ships such as  Torrey Canyon, Exxon Valdez and Costa Concordia have become household names in recent years, and the consequences for the environment, the loss of lives, ships and cargoes, together with the costs to insurance companies, have been all too clear for media audiences all around the planet. Now, a big effort is to be made to minimise the incidence of groundings through the skilled use of modern software and equipment known as ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System.)


The UK government, through the MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) has responded to a call from the IMO (International Maritime Organization) for all ships of 500 tons or more to be fitted with ECDIS within a sliding timescale and for the deck officers of those ships to be carefully trained in the use of ECDIS.


The MCA has now published a complete list of approved training providers http://www.dft.gov.uk/mca/ancillary_course_providers.pdf of which ECDIS Ltd is proud to be a prominent part.
