JRC/Alphatron Marine has installed new VSTEP simulators at its training facility in Rotterdam and re-introduced ECDIS Type Specific Training and Marcom-A training.
The ECDIS Type Specific Training for both JRC and Wärtsilä (Transas) ECDIS is offered for an international audience in English and provides the required knowledge for the general use of the ECDIS as well as a detailed introduction to the system’s features.
For ECDIS training, JRC/Alphatron Marine requires that the trainee has adequate experience on ECDIS and has accomplished the IMO Model Course 1.27
The Marcom-A training represents the General Operating Certificate which allows users to operate maritime radio transmission equipment. Other facets of this study include the international GMDSS regulations, compulsory books, emergency procedures and daily use of the onboard equipment. Marcom-A training will be given only in Dutch and is certified by Dutch authority ILenT.
