Seagull partners with ECDIS developers

(Posted on 09/05/18)

One of the challenges that navigating officers’ face is a large number of ECDIS systems found on vessels, all with different user interfaces. However, on boarding vessels officers need to be able to competently use the ECDIS, as it could be their main source of navigation. In order to assist the shipping industry, Seagull has partnered with ECDIS developers to create cost-effective ECDIS type-specific training for several of the widely used models.

Seagull Maritime has collaborated with Japan Radio Co.,Ltd.(JRC) for several years and is now able to deliver type-specific familiarisation on JRC ECDIS JAN-7201, JAN-7201S, JAN-9201, JAN-9201S. JRC approved familiarisation is already delivered on JRC ECDIS models JAN-701, 901 and JAN-2000, highlighting that Seagull has always had a strong collaboration with JRC.

Japan Radio Co.,Ltd.(JRC) is one of the world's longest established companies in the field of marine electronics, has a rich heritage in maritime satellite communications, dating back to the world's first Marisat terminal in 1975. From then on the rest really is history through the Inmarsat alphabet. Since its founding in 1915, JRC has pursued an independent path as a leading company in information technology and wireless communication equipment.

 

With ECDIS being mandatory on vessels, it has become even more important to ensure that navigating officers are well trained both in their generic knowledge of ECDIS functions, but also the type of ECDIS they are utilising on board. The IMO recognised the importance of ECDIS familiarisation training with the amendments introduced to STCW. There is also the requirement in the ISM Code for officers to be fully trained to approve standards. Seagull Maritime's ECDIS courses are based on the requirement for type-specific familiarisation and are approved by the ECDIS developers themselves.

For several years, Port State Control(PSC) Inspectors have continued to target use of ECDIS as part of their ship inspections. In some cases, this has led to ships being delayed for crew training when they were found deficient in the operation of ECDIS
