Interschalt reports that it has reached the milestone of training 2,500 seafarers at the Maritime Education and Training Centre (MET) which it opened five years ago in Schenefeld, near Hamburg (Germany).

Its 2,500th student was Piers Boileau-Goad, a 27-year-old British Second Officer in the service of Oceania Cruises, who took an ECDIS training course.

The MET facility is equipped with four bridge simulators - one with a 270 degree panorama and three with a 120 degree view - and the systems of four different manufacturers are available on demand.

Each year, about 500 captains, ship officers and pilots from all over the world join courses in Schenefeld, from an introduction to basic maritime knowledge to engine control room and bridge simulations.

In addition to the generic and type-specific ECDIS training, the MET provides courses for the Interschalt MACS3 loading computer, fleet management software Bluefleet and the Bluetracker ship monitoring software. Seminars are also offered to cover all aspects of hazardous goods transportation.
