ECDIS training course revised

The generic ECDIS training is build on the revised ECDIS Model Course 1.27.
Based on its experience in this area, Interschalt says it has submitted several
suggestions for improving the training programme. One of it was to revise the
ECDIS Model Course draft submitted to STW 43, which was a fixed list of minimum requirements comprising 60 topics. Furthermore, Interschalt proposed that trainers develop individual instruction modules built on a basic catalogue of
ECDIS course topics. This flexible approach is said to yield several major
training benefits: instructors will now have to carefully consider the objectives, scope, focus and content of the material to be covered. Afterwards they can use the final test to better assess how well course have been conveyed. The newly amended IMO Model Course 1.27 provides them with the necessary freedom and flexibility to achieve this, according to Interschalt.
Interschalt maritime systems will be exhibiting its products and services at
the SMM (shipbuilding, machinery & marine technology trade fair hamburg) to be held on September 4th to 7th (Hall B6, Booth 307).

Germany-based Interschalt Maritime Systems says it has made important suggestions and proposals to improve basic training in the area of the ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) at the recent 43rd meeting of

Subcommittee on Standards of Training and Watchkeeping (STW) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London.
