Transas Offers Free ECDIS Workbook

Press Release
Monday, February 11, 2013

Transas Marine has published an ECDIS Workbook which can be used together with the Transas ECDIS demo software, both available for free download from the company's website.


According to the STCW 2010 Code, ECDIS training is mandatory for all Deck officers serving on board ships fitted with ECDIS equipment.


The goal of the ECDIS Demo Workbook is to provide the vessel's crew with knowledge, understanding and proficiency in the use of Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS and Chart Assistant Utility. The workbook is designated for nautical officers and other persons in charge of navigational tasks, and consists of theoretical and practice parts.


Transas provides ECDIS Training with different types of courses, including generic, type-specific, onboard, train the trainer, technical and computer-based trainings. Shipping companies can train their crews worldwide through the Transas Global ECDIS Training Network GET-Net, which today consists of 24 partners.


Through 2012, Transas Marine trained hundreds of seafarers and issued 1,005 ECDIS certificates through its own training structure, including 144 instructor certificates for qualification of in-house trainers for shipping companies and training institutes as required by some Flag States.
