UK based ECDIS training and consultancy company ECDIS Ltd has announced the opening of their new purpose built state of the art training facility near Southampton in the UK.


The larger facility means that ECDIS Ltd has the ability to provide an increased supply of multiple approved Generic and Type Specific training on a number of the leading manufacturer’s software every week of the year. ECDIS Ltd provides comprehensive approved ECDIS training to be found anywhere in the world. Their generic ECDIS courses have been developed for use on the leading manufacturer’s equipment, are approved by Flag State and are delivered by navigators experienced in using ECDIS at sea. Their Type Specific training is available on the leading brands and is accredited by the Nautical Institute, a world first.

Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd, says, “This is a substantial milestone for ECDIS Ltd. We have not only pooled together the brightest experts in ECDIS, but we have a 4500 square foot facility that houses the leading manufacturer’s equipment. We are training multiple approved IMO 1.27 Generic and Type."

"Specific courses to the international market week in, week out. The new facility will also be used by related organisations and shipping companies who wish to utilise our simulators and ECDIS systems for their training. Over the next few months we are opening up 2 more classrooms to increase our supply here in the UK. The facility also acts as an excellent base for our ever growing international mobile training, where we teach both IMO 1.27 and Type Specific courses at a location of the customer’s choosing, such as onboard ship.”

Malcolm Instone, Director of Operations at ECDIS Ltd, adds, “It is worth noting that our new facility is not only for delivering training courses, but is also a place where the maritime industry can view the various ECDIS equipment available. Shipping companies should feel free to contact ECDIS Ltd to discuss their ECDIS needs, knowing that they are more than welcome to visit for free consultancy. The facility is already used as an outlet for all within the industry, from ECDIS purchasers to journalists. We have a wide range of ECDIS systems for you to trial, on-hand experts to talk to and literature of related material from charting options to ECDIS brochures to take away.”
