ECDIS Type-specific Training on CD

Press Release
Monday, February 04, 2013

UK's Lilley and Gillie announce that their Navmaster ECDIS type-specific training CD-Rom is now available.

Believed to be the first stand-alone type-specific training CD-Rom available to ship owners, Lilley and Gillie have taken the view that the required training should be made as convenient as possible to customers.

While Lilley and Gillie continue to offer face-to-face training both in a network of affiliated schools and by sending trainers to customers they recognise there is a gap for a simple and cost effective training solution to meet the exacting requirements of ECDIS.

Having access to training material on board in the form of a CD-Rom will enable officers working all over the world to carry out the training no matter where they are; one CD-Rom on board can be used by any number of ships officers.

The Navmaster ECDIS CD-Rom gives thorough and interactive training in all aspects of Navmaster operation. The training is split into lessons, which can each be carried out whenever convenient. Each lesson provides a voiceover along with text-based explanations. There are also interactive video sequences demonstrating on-screen processes. The user interacts frequently during the training, carrying out actions exactly as they would when using the Navmaster ECDIS. At the end of each topic is a short quiz to reinforce the learning. It takes around 8 hours to complete all the lessons.

Designed to be used on board or ashore there is no requirement for Internet access. Following the CD-Rom release a web-based version of the training will be made available, which will allow officers to complete the training before leaving for the vessel.
