Admiralty has been travelling the world with its ‘Are you ready for the ECDIS regulations?’ workshops and feedback from attendees has been clear: crew training is one of the industry’s top priorities.

The Admiralty team recently returned from Shanghai, where the shipping community gathered for the largest ever Marintec exhibition. We took our ‘Are you ready for the ECDIS regulations?’ workshop to the show, running sessions simultaneously in English and Mandarin over three days.
Initially we had planned three sessions, but due to popular demand we added an extra one to the schedule. Over the course of the show around 100 maritime professionals attended the workshop; most attendees were ship managers keen to get more information about how to introduce digital navigation into the ships they manage.
