Transas Global ECDIS Training Network GET-Net: triple win concept for ECDIS market

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

Transas Marine joins forces between its Simulation and On-board systems customers by launching the unique concept of the Transas Global ECDIS Training Network GET-Net.

With ECDIS mandation on its way and the new STCW ECDIS Training requirements in force from 1st January 2012, the shipping industry is facing a challenging environment. Since most of the crews are truly international from various places worldwide, it is desirable to have a good and standardized ECDIS training available in different locations.

Transas GET-Net is an international partnership between Transas Marine and outstanding ECDIS training providers worldwide. All partnering training centers receive a detailed instructor training and pass quality audit. ECDIS training is based on a Germanisher Lloyd certified training course which follows the ECDIS IMO Model Course 1.27 and already considers the requirements of the Manila Amendments to STCW.

The first training centers to enter the partnership are INTERSCHALT maritime systems AG (Hamburg, Germany and Manila, Philippines), COSMOS Training Center (Athens, Greece), eIM Training Center (Piraeus, Greece) and MSG MarineServe GmbH (Hamburg, Germany).

Using GET-Net, a shipping company is able to train locally and save travelling costs, at the same time getting a standardized course with a guaranteed training quality.

Bjoern Roehlich, Training Manager, Transas Marine comments: 'The GET-Net idea is to create a triple win situation for training centers, our ECDIS customers and Transas itself. Together we offer a variety of options; shipping companies can choose preferable training type and location and benefit from the high quality set by Transas Marine and its partners. It is also an answer to the increased responsibility for ECDIS training put on the Makers by Flag States and Marine Administrations like the latest MCA MIN 405'.
