As the first deadline approaches for the mandatory carriage of ECDIS, there has been growing interest in the potential of computer-based training (CBT) to plug the apparent supply/demand gap for classroom training places.
CBT, it has been suggested is not just a logical choice but effectively, the industry’s best hope of meeting training demand as the mandate progresses. At first sight, the argument for CBT appears strong and given the resources needed to develop the product required, providers tend to be companies with a long-term view.

With Asia Pacific Maritime (APM) in Singapore this week, here’s a final reminder that we’re hosting a free workshop that will help attendees prepare for the integration of ECDIS.
The ‘Are you ready for the new ECDIS regulations?’ workshops – which have been developed in conjunction with ECDIS expert Captain Paul Hailwood – provide a simple, step-by-step process to support the planning and delivery of compliance with the ECDIS Mandate. The workshops cover everything from the initial risk assessment to training and the introduction and implementation of new procedures.
