The purpose of this course is to provide students with knowledge, skills, and a thorough understanding of the ECDIS, in order to safely navigate vessels whose primary means of navigation is the ECDIS. This course covers the requirements of the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers Convention (STCW1978), as amended by the 2010 Manila Amendments (STCW2010). The course content is as per Transport Canada’s TP 4958E and IMO model course 1.27. Students will be trained and assessed using ECDIS and other associated navigational equipment in a simulated environment. Students will perform exercises in setting-up the ECDIS display best-suited for the area of navigation, perform basic navigation functions in accordance with the Collision Regulations, create, check, and monitor routes, and take proper and effective action when dealing with equipment failures and malfunctions. Those planning to enter the course should be proficient in nautical chartwork, and be familiar with visual navigation and bridge watchkeeping duties, including the operation of the Radar and ARPA. Students should also be familiar with Windows-based personal computing operating systems, using keyboards, mice, and trackballs.
