Type-specific ECDIS training in Manila

Furuno has announced that it has accredited the Veritas Maritime Training Centre in Manila to provide Furuno type-specific ECDIS training.

Under the ‘NavSkills’ agreement, Veritas MTC will accommodate six training workstations (four FEA-2107 workstations and two next-generation FMD-3200 workstations) and have three of its instructors trained by Furuno.

Veritas MTC, formerly known as Epsilon Maritime Training Center, was established in January 2012.

The ‘NavSkills’ programme ensures that the course in an accredited facility is conducted in the same way, with the same content and duration and using the same teaching methods as employed by Furuno in its own training centres in Denmark and Singapore.

The Japan-based company says it is able now to provide type-specific ECDIS training in Germany, Turkey, Greece, Singapore, India, The Philippines, China and Denmark.

It also wants to expand its training network by establishing similar co-operations with training centres in the USA, Europe, Africa and Asia.
