Internet Option Added to ECDIS Type Training
PC Maritime added internet delivery to Navmaster ECDIS type-specific training which now covers all bases: onboard ship, ashore in training centers and via internet.
V. Ships had identified situations where a crew member joins ship at short notice and urgently requires ECDIS training & certification to comply with ISM Code requirements. The Navmaster course is normally provided on two DVDs containing the training material and the formal assessment. The DVDs can be used by any number of crew during a 12-month period and the process does not require internet access/ satcomm time, only email. However V Ships found there were cases where the DVDs were not already at the required location and expressed concern that this could prevent crew from operating the ECDIS. To overcome this problem PC Maritime added an internet delivery option.
