The course has been designed for candidates who have completed ECDIS generic training and now require equipment specific training. It has been designed for officers in charge of a navigational watch and for experienced nautical officers and other persons with navigational responsibilities.They should have experience in performing chartwork and should be able to practice all usual tasks concerning standard navigational procedures and equipment. They should know about the functions and limitations of other navigational equipment. ECDIS is not aiming to teach trainees to navigate using ECDIS,  it is teaching them to use ECDIS in order to navigate safely. Therefore, we require the trainee to have the basic navigation knowledge and that they understand what a navigation watch entails.  The  traditional navigation techniques are still relevant in a digital world and we will teach the use of existing navigation skills on the ECDIS 100 system.
