Living with ECDIS requires a ship manager and the ship's officers to be constantly aware of changes in legal requirements and maintenance issues. ADMIRALTY 'Living with ECDIS' Seminars are designed to help understand these issues to ensure the individual and their fleet can remain compliant whilst getting the most from their ECDIS.
The seminar will benefit any person involved with the shipping industry including, managers, owners, ship personnel, regulators and auditors. There is opportunity to raise your real-world issues and challenges, ask questions and seek solutions whilst networking with other industry colleagues.
