Quality: eBook
Pages count: 16
Description: This special edition of Standard Safety aims to explain the new
legislation relating to Electronic Chart Display and Information System
(ECDIS), its implementation and discuss the need for effective ECDIS
training for navigating officers. Members need to understand that
ECDIS is radically changing how ships are navigated. They should
identify ECDIS training requirements, ensure the training resources
are available and that all bridge watch-keepers are properly trained
through the use of generic and type-specific ECDIS training courses.
This quantum change in how ships are navigated with ECDIS needs
to be understood primarily by those on the ship’s bridge but also by
those mariners in marine and safety departments ashore. We enclose
two training CDs with this Standard Safety to explain ECDIS and to
simulate how ECDIS operates (courtesy of ECDIS Ltd and TRANSAS).
