The Maritime Pilots back then
Maritime Pilots today
ECDIS Training designed exclusively for Maritime Pilots
SafeLearn offers an online course, specifically tailored for the needs of the maritime pilots while understanding the complex nature of their professional role. This online training course on Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS), acts as an informative course and a familiarisation tool, precisely designed for pilots operating this equipment. The course ensures that the pilot is up to date and equipped with refreshed knowledge of the different equipment for safe manoeuvring of the vessel.
Pilots are in a different situation from ships’ bridge crews when it comes to operating ECDIS. They do not manage the system files or input and update data; therefore, not all subjects covered in the IMO Model Course and Type Specific Training (TST) are directly relevant to a pilot’s job.
Generic and Type-Specific Familiarisation
SafeLearn’s ECDIS Training for Maritime Pilots covers both generic topics and type-specific familiarisation. Subject areas covered in the course include an overview of ECDIS carriage requirements, electronic charts, ECDIS navigational functions, ship handling with ECDIS, sensor integration, alert management, as well as the latest changes according to the new IHO and IEC standards.
In keeping up with all the latest technologies, this e-course aims to ensure that maritime pilots understand the navigational functions of ECDIS, and are familiar with the features that are common to all ECDIS systems.
