Press Release
Tuesday, September 18, 2012

UK based ECDIS training and consultancy company ECDIS Ltd have signed a new agreement with Kelvin Hughes to take ECDIS Ltd MantaDigital training worldwide.

 

The new agreement now provides access for Kelvin Hughes distributers worldwide to book Generic and Type Specific ECDIS courses directly with ECDIS Ltd for training on Kelvin Hughes MantaDigital™ software. The streamlined course booking process will ensure a more efficient training service for Kelvin Hughes customers.


Kelvin Hughes is a world leader in the design and supply of marine navigation systems with over two and a half centuries of experience and knowledge. With a history that dates back to the 1800's, they have a highly innovative product range, which is designed to provide mariners with the most advanced navigation solutions and services available. MRAD ECDIS takes its place in the e-Navigation Centre.


ECDIS Ltd provide training of Kelvin Hughes Manta Digital ECDIS onboard or at their facility.


Malcolm Instone, Director of Operations & Standards of ECDIS Ltd, says, “It is a pleasure to be working with such a well established company that has been servicing the industry for over 250 years. We are delighted to be their worldwide independent training provider. MantaDigital ECDIS is constantly improving and evolving, and as such we will ensure that the training content is kept up to date so that it complies with certification requirements and policy.”


Natalie Robson, an instructor at ECDIS Ltd, adds, “We have already been providing both 5 day 1.27 Generic and Type Specific courses on MantaDigital worldwide. Considerable time and effort has gone into the development of our Kelvin Hughes ECDIS courses to ensure that they are of the highest quality, and to fully prepare the instructors for all possible questions about the system. This is vitally important as students wish to explore specific aspects and functions in great depth, or any particular issues they have faced in the past. Getting an answer to a system specific question from a knowledgeable instructor that does not appear in the user guide is an obvious advantage over Computer Based Training (CBT).”


Barry Jones, Sales Manager at Kelvin Hughes, adds, “Training is the key to safe and effective introduction of ECDIS for primary navigation and we are delighted that ECDIS Ltd are providing generic and type specific training on our multi-function MantaDigital ECDIS. With staff that is well known for its experience and capability we believe that ECDIS Ltd deliver some of the best ECDIS training available anywhere in the world to our customers.”
