Since January 1st 2017 ECDIS training is a compulsory navigation license requirement for captains and navigating/maritime officers. This is an immediate result of the almost universal switchover on board of ships from paper charts towards digital chart- and information systems.
All captains and navigating/maritime officers are required to have successfully completed a generic ECDIS training and a type specific ECDIS training.
The type specific ECDIS training is required for each specific brand and type of ECDIS, the captain or officer is operating on a ship.
The generic ECDIS training is based on IMO’s model course 1.27, and is approved by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environmental Affairs (Inspectie Verkeer en Waterstaat). The cooperation between RH Marine and STC B.V. is an ideal combination, since only nautical colleges are certified to provide the general training.
The type-specific ECDIS training can be arranged at our training facility in Rotterdam or on board. This training is also part of our educational program for the integrated bridge training.
