ACAT 4.0 update for ECDIS training

The eMaritime Group has launched a new ACAT module as a ‘bolt-on’ for its annual competency assurance ECDIS training course, to meet the requirements of Edition 4.0 of the IHO ECDIS Presentation Library.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}ACAT (Annual Competency Assurance Training) is used to assess the competency of officers in the performance of navigational duties and has been designed to ensure compliance with 2018 inspection rules.

The video-based course can be completed online, or downloaded to be completed offline where internet access may not be available.

“We have seen a huge rise in the number of companies signing up to ACAT,” said Neil Savage, onboard ECDIS instructor, ECDIS Ltd.

“Not enough of us know what changed in the recent updates to ECDIS. The new 4.0 module has proved that all officers who have undergone the course have a significantly increased awareness of what changes came to presentation library 4.0. The feedback shows they have a better understanding of the new ECDIS display and now consider themselves better prepared for future audits and inspections.”{/mprestriction}
