ECDIS Record of Training and Familiarisation

radar on ship

Masters and officers certified under STCW serving on board ships fitted with ECDIS must undertake an approved ECDIS generic training programme. This handy publication allows mariners to record details of these ECDIS training courses, undertaken both on shore and at sea, and also includes a helpful familiarisation checklist, for use on board, to ensure that they are conversant with the operation of ship’s ECDIS equipment.

This Record of ECDIS Training and Familiarisation will allow officers to record the details of courses undertaken. It also provides a series of check lists that will guide the individual through the process of familiarisation with the ECDIS once installed onboard.
