MSG MarineServe GmbH announced that it has been appointed as official training agent by Danelec Marine to provide ECDIS training services locally and worldwide.
The agreement with MSG includes ETC, MSG’s ECDIS Training Consortium, to ensure that Danelec is able to offer a complete equipment training service in support of its global customer base. The training provided by MSG and its ETC partners is configured on a single, comprehensive, training structure and methodology in order to guarantee the quality and consistency of the training, while allowing Danelec to monitor content, quality standards and recordkeeping through a single point of contact.
“We are very pleased with the partnership with MSG and ETC,” said Hans Ottosen, Danelec CEO. “We see a growing demand among our customers globally for type-specific training for our ECDIS solutions. The partnership with MSG and ETC ensures that our ECDIS offering is fully supported by high quality and approved type-specific training. With MSG’s training facilities in 9 countries around the world offering ECDIS training, combined with the Danelec sales and service network in more than 50 countries to support our user-friendly ECDIS, we feel very confident in meeting the total need for ECDIS for our customers globally."
MSG’s partners in its associated ECDIS Training Consortium, ETC, are located in key centers of maritime activity and are, therefore, able to meet the multi-locational nature of the demand for training at a commercially viable price. MSG will deliver its ECDIS training courseware, ECDIS training systems and approved Train-the-Trainer courses. MSG will also provide 24/7 certificate authentication and trainee database services for reference by its Partners, Customers, Port State Control and other concerned authorities.
