This course covers training in Ecdis (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) and is based on the provisions of table A-II/1 and A-II/2 of the STCW Code. It is intended to provide the knowledge, skill and understanding of ECDIS and electronic charts to the thorough extent needed to safely navigate vessels whose primary means of navigation is ECDIS.
