On 23 February 2018 the Commission recommended that the Directeur D’exploitation at Ponant review the procedures for the setting up, training in and ongoing support for ECDIS systems on all of its ships, and ensure that all comply with mandatory requirements and that the ships’ crews are fully conversant with good industry practice for the use of ECDIS.

Ponant has also started obtaining additional ECDIS training session program for its officers. Eleven officers received this training in 2016 and 2017 and we plan to train 15 more during 2018.
We also plan to develop a specific Ponant’s ECDIS training with e-learning methods, we are in the process of researching the best way of doing this. We intend to complete this by the end of 2018. We will provide TAIC with an update once we have completed this internal training program.
