    FSOSC provides Furuno Norge-approved TECDIS familiarisation training

    Training // January 22, 2014

    Farstad Shipping Offshore Simulation Centre (FSOSC) has recently received approval from Furuno Norge to deliver approved TECDIS familiarisation training.

    The training is designed to meet the requirements of STCW A-I/14 and ISM Code 6.3 and 6.5. Coupled with the IMO Model Course 1.27, this will satisfy flag state training requirements for deck officers sailing on board ECDIS-fitted vessels.

    The approval from Furuno Norge ensures FSOSC is the exclusive provider of TECDIS familiarisation training in Australia.

    "This exciting agreement will ensure all users of the TECDIS system in the region have access to quality training to get the best out of this functional and user-friendly ECDIS system," said the company.

    "In addition to the above, FSOSC expects to be able to offer AMSA approved IMO Model Course 1.27 Generic ECDIS training from March."
