PC Maritime reaches 100th ECDIS type training certificate

PC Maritime reports that 100 navigating officers have now successfully completed its ECDIS Type Training course and passed the Assessment test required for formal certification since the course was issued in March.

Over 70 vessels have been equipped with the two Navmaster type training DVDs, one containing interactive instruction, the other the assessment test. The DVDs are individually branded with the ship operator’s logo and include any specific company Safety Management System requirements.

Wallem Germany manager Mangala Herath says that he has received positive feedback from the nine Wallem-managed vessels equipped with Navmaster, particularly with reference to the Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE).

“More often than not, SIRE inspectors are enquiring about type specific training and they are satisfied seeing our staff onboard undergoing the Navmaster training course,” said Mr Herath.

“Our crews have become more confident when using the ECDIS and are now aware of most of the features, thereby utilising the ECDIS more. The Navmaster course also helps second officers to upload chart corrections.”

OSG also has Navmaster ECDIS installed onboard 45 vessels, with OSG's Captain Vasilikis noting that his crews are steadily completing Assessment tests.
