Furuno adds type specific ECDIS training in Manila

Furuno Electric has said that type specific training for the new ECDIS FMD-3200/FMD-3300 is now available in the Philippines.

The COMPASS training centre in Manila had training workstations installed in May and its instructors have been trained through Furuno’s train-the-trainer programme.

A first group of navigators completed a training session on the 16th and 17th of May. Furuno says that they all came out with confidence in their ability to operate the new ECDIS installed on board their respective vessels.

The training programme for the FMD-3200/FMD-3300 available at COMPASS is identical to the type specific training for the same models provided by Furuno’s own training centres in Denmark and Singapore. The syllabus has been developed by INSTC Denmark in compliance with the STCW and ISM Codes as well as with all currently known requirements from flag states.

Since COMPASS joined the NavSkills network in April 2012, it has concluded about 170 Furuno type specific ECDIS courses for the FEA2107/FEA-2807 and issued just about 1,000 certificates to Filipino navigators.

Furuno says that besides the Philippines, it can provide type specific training for the FMD-3200/FMD-3000 ECDIS in Denmark, Singapore, Germany, Greece, and China.
