UK's ECDIS Ltd., signs up with Kelvin Huges 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.

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).”
