Type specific ECDIS training course certified

Classification society ClassNK reports that it has certified the type specific ECDIS training course provided by Philippine Standard Shipmanagement Inc (PSSI).

PSSI is an affiliate of Japanese ship management company NS United Marine Corp, a part of NS United Kaiun Group.

ClassNK says that the new course has been set up in order to address new requirements from oil majors and Port State Control (PSC) authorities, that are now requesting evidence of Type-Specific ECDIS training during vetting and PSC inspections.

This has pushed NS United Marine Corp, with the cooperation of ECDIS system manufacturer Tokyo Keiki, to establish a new ECDIS training centre at Manila-based PSSI.

The certification from ClassNK is used to confirm that the training centre’s ECDIS training is carried out in accordance with the society's independently developed rules and maritime education standards.
