ECDIS Ltd extends Kelvin Hughes training

ECDIS training and consultancy company ECDIS Ltd has signed a new agreement with Kelvin Hughes to offer training on Kelvin Hughes MantaDigital systems, on a global basis.

The new agreement will allow Kelvin Hughes distributers worldwide to book Generic and Type Specific ECDIS courses directly with ECDIS Ltd for training on MantaDigital software.

“We have already been providing both five-day 1.27 Generic and Type Specific courses on MantaDigital worldwide,” said Natalie Robson, an instructor at ECDIS Ltd.

“Considerable time and effort has gone into the development of our Kelvin Hughes ECDIS courses to ensure that they are of the highest quality, and to fully prepare the instructors for all possible questions about the system. This is vitally important as students wish to explore specific aspects and functions in great depth, or any particular issues they have faced in the past.”

“Getting an answer to a system specific question from a knowledgeable instructor that does not appear in the user guide is an obvious advantage over Computer Based Training (CBT).”

In other news, ECDIS Ltd reports that it has been included on a UK government list of approved training providers for ECDIS in the country.

The list, compiled by the UK MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency), is a response to the ECDIS carriage requirement and the need for the deck officers of fitted ships to be trained in the use of the equipment.

The MCA's complete list of approved training providers is available at
