The course, which can be supplied as a CD-ROM or downloaded from the website, is designed to train bridge officers on vessels which have JRC ECDIS as the primary means of navigation. It focuses on the proper operational use of JRC ECDIS under both ordinary and extreme conditions, in accordance with the ISM code and the STCW Convention.
The JRC models covered are JAN-2000, JAN-901B and JAN-701B. Most of the courses can be taken in offline mode.
Upon completion of the course, the trainee can take the online examination, with a written and practical test. Their performance and results are monitored and evaluated by a qualified instructor, and kept for additional review whenever necessary.
Finally, the successful trainee is interviewed face-to-face or online to check their identity before the certificate is issued.
