Furuno Electric  Co., Ltd. announced that the type specific ECDIS training for the new ECDIS FMD-3200/FMD-3300 is now available at Furuno INS Training Center in Singapore.

The new training program has been developed by INSTC Denmark embracing the same philosophy as they did when they first developed the type specific training course for the FEA-2107/FEA-2807 ECDIS. The new training program is to comply strictly with the STCW and ISM Codes as well as currently known requirements from various flag states and other stakeholders.

With the launch of the new generation ECDIS model FMD-3200/FMD-3300, Furuno is setting up training systems around the world, starting with Denmark, Germany and Singapore and moving on to other locations as fast as possible.

INSTC Singapore had their instructors trained through train-the-trainer program in order for them to be able to deliver the new training course to the navigators. Also, INSTC Singapore has installed new training workstations for the FMD-3200/FMD-3300, which is based on real equipment. The plan in INSTC Singapore is that a total of eight training workstations for the new ECDIS shall be in place, allowing for an extension of the training capacity at one training session.

The first training session was successfully conducted on April 15 and 16 2013 for a group of navigators, who have gained the in-depth knowledge about the functionalities and user interface specific to the new ECDIS.

Further preparation for extending the availability of the type specific ECDIS training for the FMD-3200/FMD-3300 around the globe is currently underway, and the number of training facilities under Furuno NavSkills contracts are expected to follow suit in the course of time: The most immediate of those would be Competent Maritime Professionals and Sea Staff (COMPASS) Training Center Inc. and Veritas Maritime Training Center in the Philippines, which are scheduled to commence the new training service in May 2013.
