German Port State Control completes ECDIS training course

ECDIS e-learning company Safebridge reports that it has completed a Basic ECDIS Training course for the Port State Control of Germany, provided to inspection officers from the BG Verkehr, the Authority responsible for conducting Port State inspections on vessels visiting German ports.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The training package covered the legal, technical and operational requirements for the carriage of ECDIS as a primary means of navigation, and included a review of the systems available from different manufacturers.

The Port State Control officers were given the opportunity to simulate an inspection based on an audit check-list provided by Safebridge while the trainer demonstrated how the nautical officers on board would be expected to perform.

“We are very fortunate and happy to host annual training courses for Port State Control inspectors who share their first-hand experience about findings onboard as well as provide statistics on deficiencies,” said Safebridge managing director, Ulf Steden.

“This allows us to further improve our training courses focusing on reducing specific weaknesses of crew onboard.”{/mprestriction}
