JRC/Alphatron Marine reintroduces Marcom-A training and ECDIS Type Specific Training on our new VSTEP simulators.

11 March 2020

JRC/Alphatron Marine offers different kinds of operational and technical training at multiple training centers worldwide for distributors, shipping companies, yards and other players in the field like crew, superintendents, installation crew, shore maintainers or onboard maintainers.

Since February 2020 our training department in Rotterdam has new VSTEP simulators available on which trainees can be trained while using the latest software. With these new simulators up and running we proudly announce the re-introduction of ECDIS Type Specific Training and Marcom-A training.

The ECDIS Type Specific Training for both JRC and Wärtsilä (Transas) ECDIS is offered for an international audience in English and provides you with the required knowledge for the general use of the ECDIS as well as a detailed introduction to the system’s features.

For ECDIS training we require that the trainee has adequate experience on ECDIS and has accomplished the IMO Model Course 1.27

The Marcom-A training represents the General Operating Certificate which allows you to operate maritime radio transmission equipment. Other facets of this study include the international GMDSS regulations, compulsory books, emergency procedures and daily use of the onboard equipment. Marcom-A training will be given only in Dutch and is certified by Dutch authority ILenT.
