The Workshop offers insights based on feedback from shipping managers and mariners who have successfully integrated digital navigation into their operations. It addresses the key issues shipping companies are facing, and provides practical and easy-to-follow steps to overcome them.
At the end of the Workshop delegates will receive a simple but comprehensive checklist for every stage of the ECDIS journey to help them with their own preparation; from the initial fleet assessment and impact on Flag State requirements and Port State inspections; through installation and crew training, to recommendations on managing the switch from paper to digital charts on the bridge.
The Digital Integration Workshop has been developed in partnership with Master Mariner and ECDIS consultant Capt. Paul Hailwood, whose insights helped to shape the UKHO’s ‘10 steps to the ECDIS Mandate’ guide. Capt. Hailwood explains;
“The Workshop shows that the transition to ECDIS is a voyage, not just a list of do’s and don’ts. I will be asking the questions that superintendents and seafarers are asking and explaining where the answers lie. By the end of the Workshop, delegates should be fully informed of what they need to do and how to do it.”
The workshop will be delivered daily at 11:00 between 29 November and 1 December on the Admiralty stand, by trainer Joe Collins, a Master Mariner with almost 40 years’ experience in the marine industry.
