One of the first customers for the service will be Vliet Shipping, which currently has two 3,850 DWT coasters under construction at Damen Bergum which Alewijnse will fit with Raytheon Anschütz bridge systems.
The Alewijnse online package will allow navigators to undertake an eight hour training course remotely, over the internet.
They will be able to log in at any time and then pause whenever they wish, provided that they complete the course within three weeks. A credit card login is used to check that the person is actually who they claim to be.
Following completion an approved familiarisation certificate for the Raytheon Anschütz ECDIS is issued.
