IAMU model course on the operational use of ECDIS The major role of the navigational departments of IAMU member universities/faculties is to provide their students with effective and high standard maritime education and training. With this in mind, the Author has composed this handbook describing the effective training methods for navigators in compliance with the STCW’95 convention and the set of IMO model courses. In addition, additional training programmes which aim at higher competencies than the minimum requirements for the competencies shown in the STCW will be considered and prepared in the future.
