Safebridge adds Kelvin Hughes ECDIS to training portfolio

ECDIS training provider Safebridge is adding Kelvin Hughes MantaDigital ECDIS to its portfolio of training courses.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new course will be available online, on board or in the classroom, and includes guided lessons, open freeplay and a competency test.

“The Safebridge online courses provide a fast, easy and affordable training platform to comply with the IMO requirement for familiarisation with the specific ECDIS model installed on the ship,” said Safebridge managing director Ulf Steden.

“Before officers move to a new ship, they can become quickly familiar with the ship’s ECDIS without the expense of attending a classroom or simulator course at a training centre.”

From July 1, all tankers over 3,000 gross tons will be obliged to carry ECDIS. Safebridge expects the demand for type-specific training to increase, as IMO mandatory carriage requirements continue to be implemented.

“Because our online course offerings are infinitely flexible and scalable, it will be easy for us to meet the surge of demand as the deadlines for compliance grow nearer,” said Mr Steden.{/mprestriction}
