ECDIS Ltd Opens New Facility

RIN Corporate Member ECDIS Ltd has opened a new purpose built training facility near Southampton in the UK.

The larger facility means that ECDIS Ltd has the ability to provide an increased supply of multiple approved Generic and Type Specific training on a number of the leading manufacturer’s software every week of the year.

ECDIS Ltd is renowned for providing the most comprehensive approved ECDIS training to be found anywhere in the world. Their generic ECDIS courses have been developed for use on the leading manufacturer’s equipment, are approved by Flag State and are delivered by navigators experienced in using ECDIS at sea. Their Type Specific training is available on the leading brands and is accredited by the Nautical Institute, a world first.

Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd, says:
'This is a substantial milestone for ECDIS Ltd. We have not only pooled together the brightest experts in ECDIS, but we have a 4500 square foot facility that houses the leading manufacturer’s equipment. We are training multiple approved IMO 1.27 Generic and Type Specific courses to the international market week in, week out. The new facility will also be used by related organisations and shipping companies who wish to utilise our simulators and ECDIS systems for their training. Over the next few months we are opening up 2 more classrooms to increase our supply here in the UK. The facility also acts as an excellent base for our ever growing international mobile training, where we teach both IMO 1.27 and Type Specific courses at a location of the customer’s choosing, such as onboard ship.'
