Imtech Marine opens Training Centre in Sharjah

Imtech Marine has opened a new Training Centre in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Hosted by its Radio Holland Middle East subsidiary, the facility has started with a type-specific ECDIS Training Course for Navigators and Masters to meet the demand for ECDIS familiarisation.

The Training Centre is equipped with Furuno FEA and FMD stations, supported with simulated surroundings and open sea areas. Imtech says that its programme has been designed according to IMO regulations and is kept up-to-date with current flag state requirements.

The audited and certified course takes two days, with theoretical and practical training on the first day. Practical examples are discussed and specific questions from participants are answered. On the second day, a compulsory test is taken. After successful completion of the type-specific ECDIS Training Course, a certificate is issued.

Imtech notes that IMO regulation requires all commercial vessels to be equipped with an ECDIS system by the year 2018. Practical knowledge of standard procedures and familiarisation with the system will be required in order to ensure that all Navigators and Masters are fully competent in using ECDIS.
