The STCW Convention and the International Safety Management (ISM) Code require companies to ensure that seafarers are provided with familiarisation training. A ship safety-management system should include familiarisation with the ECDIS equipment fitted, including its backup arrangements, sensors and related peripherals. ECDIS manufacturers are encouraged to provide training resources, including type-specific materials. These resources may form part of the ECDIS familiarisation training.
Our new Onboard Familiarisation System (OFS), created by ChartWorld master mariners, has been developed to provide every nautical officer with optimal support and training for the use of eGlobe G2. OFS is designed to give crew the knowledge they require to operate the ECDIS safely, even with no prior knowledge. The entire OFS training takes approximately 90 minutes to complete.
Beside the familiarisation course, the OFS provides an index, troubleshooting, and a support section on audit preparation. This is all about guaranteeing continuous training. Assessment modules implemented and automatically-generated training certificates provide monitoring and verification of the crew's training.
This combination encourages crew to use this as a daily support tool to refresh and expand their knowledge, instead of relying on a one-time training session.
With updates distributed on a frequent basis, ChartWorld ensures that your vessels always have a training tool which is optimised to match their requirements for safe navigation onboard.
