Computer Based Training CBT
(FURUNO ECDIS models FMD-3100 and FMD 3200).

FURUNO has developed a CBT solution for the latest FURUNO ECDIS models. This training shall be considered as a minimum solution of familiarization training although it still fulfill the requirements of the IMO ISM code subsection 6.3 and 6.5 with a limited assessment test.

By simple downloading of a CBT software the trainee get access to a complete session of training, which enables the trainee to obtain knowledge of the disciplines available in the classroom and the NAVSKILLS CAT concept, however, by means of a common PC/laptop only. No physical ECDIS keyboard is needed.

The trainee can obtain the familiarzation training from his home or at another convenient place. The training time is estimated to 8 -10 hours. The training can be executed in interrupted sessions and resumed when convenient. No session tests are available.

The certificate for a passed CBT training can be obtained by purchasing a license key. This key is inserted by the end of the training session, when the training programme requires the key to be inserted. When uploading the final test sheet the requested license key is matched with the purchase order in the FURUNO Training database and the certificate is issued and send to the owner/crewing company or individual depending of the address submitted when signing up for the test.
