STCW requires that all masters and officers in charge of a navigational watch (Watchkeeper Deck) on a ship fitted with ECDIS must have completed a generic ECDIS course.
NMIT’s Generic ECDIS training is based on IMO Model Course 1.27 and approved by Maritime New Zealand.
NMIT has both Kongsberg and Transas ECDIS simulator, students will cover the following topics:
This course can only take 6 students at a time due to computer stations. Some courses are run as part of the Mate Fishing Vessel - Unlimited and Diploma in Nautical Science programmes, and may, therefore, have limited places for individual students.
Additional courses can be run in exceptional circumstances. If you have a group of mariners in your organisation who need to complete this course, please contact us directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
