All navigators attend a “Generic ECDIS Training” according to IMO model course 1.27. Additionally navigators have to attend a manufacturer-specific ECDIS training for each ECDIS model in use on-board.
Raytheon Anschütz offers ECDIS training ashore together with established maritime training centers worldwide. For a comprehensive list with all training partners, please follow this link:
Attending a manufacturer-specific ECDIS training session ashore sometimes presents logistical challenges for shipowners, may take time and finally may increase costs for shipping companies. Therefore, Raytheon Anschütz offers their customers also certified ECDIS Online-Training courses together with the E-learning specialist Safebridge.
Navigators can take the training at any time via any Internet connection and obtain the necessary certificate before they go on board ship. For more information about ECDIS Training online, please visit the Safebridge website.
