  • onboard ECDIS familiarisation checklists

This record book supersedes ‘ECDIS Record of Training and Familiarisation’ (2016) and ‘ECDIS Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Log’ (2014).

This record book has two purposes.

  • It is your definitive career record of ECDIS qualifications and experience.
  • It will guide you through all your career exams on ECDIS including promotional assessment, STCW exams, oral exams and ship inspections.

With over 30 ECDIS systems on the market you will work on different ECDIS systems at various stages of your career and it is likely that you will need to operate multiple software versions from the same manufacturer. On board ship you will need to record experience and qualifications as part of your documentary evidence of ECDIS use and refresh yourself with these systems in the future.

To use this book correctly it is vital that you record for every type specific make and model you work with and where possible keep a copy of your qualification inside this book. Before attending any navigation training courses, exams, or inspections ensure you review the appropriate section within this book.

In the future you may be asked to provide evidence of your experience. This is often when being interviewed to join a new company/ship, as part of a promotion process or during ship inspections. Therefore, keeping this record book up to date and ready for presentation is of importance for your career.

Documenting your ECDIS related experience and certification in addition to taking the time to learn and complete the self assessment tests in this record book will contribute towards creating a comprehensive record of your ECDIS experience, ECDIS qualifications and continued professional development.
