Alphatron upgrades ECDIS training lab

Alphatron Marine has upgraded the ECDIS training facility at its headquarters in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, with new systems for seafarer training.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The facility has been in operation for five years, training and certifying seafarers for the ECDIS IMO model course alongside Type Specific Training (TST) for various manufacturers.

The latest upgrades will allow for ECDIS Type Specific Training on the latest equipment versions from both Transas and JRC to be performed on the same classroom navigation simulator, which is capable of switching between the different sets of software and applications.

Alphatron says that it expects training to be further expanded to non-seagoing personnel, such as staff in offices of crewing agencies, superintendents, shipping companies and harbour authorities.{/mprestriction}
