Hamburg, GER – 28 February 2014
Hamburg-based ECDIS training specialist Safebridge extends its portfolio by a new type-specific familiarization course for the CHARTPILOT 1100/93×0 series made by SAM Electronics. The manufacturer approved course is available online and completes the coverage of online training for SAM Electronics’ ECDIS products. The courses for CHARTPILOT 1100/93×0 series as well as the ECDISPILOT series courses can be booked for single officers on demand or be assigned from a fleet training package. They also cover the MULTIPILOT version of the respective ECDIS.
“We are happy that we are now able to satisfy our customers’ demands asking for online training for both Generations of the SAM Electronics ECDIS”, says Arne Melzer, Vice President Operations at SAM Electronics. “There has been a huge demand for the CHARTPILOT training and people where just waiting for the launch to start their trainings”, adds Ulf Steden, Managing Director of Safebridge. He states that “concerning equipment familiarization we see online training gaining more and more market share compared to classroom training as it is not only more cost efficient but often is the only way to get the training on time before joining the vessel.”
SAM Electronics is a turnkey supplier of complete electrical systems
as well as integrated navigation, automation, communication, energy distribution
and propulsion systems for all types of ships.
Safebridge provides a wide portfolio of equipment-specific familiarization training online. All familiarization courses allow remote access to the respective software. The students can immerse into a real life scenario and gain confidence on the system while actually working with the same software they will encounter later on their bridge.
