Resolve joins ECDIS training network

ADVERTISEMENT

Ft. Lauderdale-based Resolve Maritime Academy has joined the Transas Global ECDIS Training Network, GET-Net. A subsidiary of Resolve Marine Group, a global leader in emergency response and vessel salvage, the academy has recently expanded its courses and implemented full mission and classroom simulators from Transas.

Although offering specific capabilities aimed at the cruise industry, the simulators are designed with the flexibility to be used for training applications across a wide spectrum of maritime users.

The academy has ECDIS and multifunctional navigational displays at all levels of simulation, from their classrooms with 21 ECDIS workplaces, to mini-bridges with visualization, full mission systems, and bridge wing simulation.

It provides generic and Transas type-specific ECDIS training and certification in full compliance with Flag State, Port State Control, and Classification Society requirements.

“The Transas GET-Net program is a great way for us to access markets we otherwise would find difficult to reach,” said David Boldt, simulator group manager.

According to the STCW 2010 Code, ECDIS training is mandatory for all deck officers serving on board ships fitted with ECDIS equipment.
