Certificate for manufacturer-approved type specific training for Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS, issued upon successful completion of the course.

Certificate validity – 5 years from issue date.

Recent accident reports have highlighted the importance of continuous training and assessment in ECDIS operations. It’s all about safety, as manufacturers and ship operators we have the responsibility of making sure users operate ECDIS correctly in different situations. There is no evidence to support that operators are using the ECDIS correctly and to its full extent in daily operations without continuous training. We recommend that users refresh their knowledge and are re-assessed every 5 years as a minimum.

Verify certificate

All certificates which are issued after successful completion of an online Type Specific Training course within ARTS Service are registered and stored for verification and prevention of fraud.

The certificate validity can be checked online by the certificate number and the holder name.
