Industry recognises revised IMO Model Course for ECDIS

The IMO’s Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) Model Course (1.27) has been revised to ensure that navigators understand ECDIS in the context of navigation and can demonstrate all competencies contained in and implied by STCW 2010.

The new publication is entitled Model Course (1.27) 2012 Edition and is now available from the IMO  (www.imo.org). Leading industry organisations, including INTERTANKO, wish to bring to the attention of all mariners, ship owners, managers, training providers and Authorities that competency in the use of ECDIS is essential for maritime safety.
