Monday, January 07, 2013

 Resolve Maritime Academy became the first major training center in the USA to join the Transas Global ECDIS Training Network GET-Net.


Resolve Maritime Academy, LLC is a subsidiary of Resolve Marine Group, Inc. a  leader in emergency response and vessel salvage.


Joining the Global GET-Net ECDIS training network, represents another step in Resolve Maritime Academy’s recent expansion of programs and offerings, and follows the extensive implementation of full mission and classroom simulators from Transas at their 17th Street facility in Fort Lauderdale, during 2011 and 2012.  Although offering specific capabilities aimed at the Cruise Industry, the simulators are designed with the flexibility to be utilized for training applications across a wide spectrum of maritime users.


The Academy has successfully implemented ECDIS and multifunctional navigational displays at all levels of simulation, from their classrooms with no less than twenty-one ECDIS workplaces, to part task ‘mini-bridges’ with visualization, full mission systems, and bridge wing simulation for precision docking using ECDIS.


Resolve Maritime Academy provides generic and Transas type-specific ECDIS training and certification, for national and international clients, in full compliance with Flag State, Port State Control, and Classification Society requirements, with a fully qualified team of experienced expert Instructors.



David Boldt, Simulator Group Manager at the Resolve Maritime Academy commented; “Resolve is exceptionally pleased to join with Transas as a partner in training. The Transas GET-Net program is a great way for us to access markets we otherwise would find difficult to reach.


This strategic partnership allows Resolve to meet the STCW 2010 objectives and all Flag State requirements for ECDIS Type Specific training”.



According to the STCW 2010 Code, ECDIS training is mandatory for all Deck officers serving on board ships fitted with ECDIS equipment. The Transas ECDIS Equipment Specific Training and certification program provided via Transas GET-Net and offered worldwide via GET-Net partners, is an important component of ECDIS knowledge for users, and helps to ensure that deck officers utilizing Transas equipment are trained to the highest standards available.
