ACAT Content

ECDIS ACAT is not designed to relieve Ship Managers/Operators or owners from their obligations under the STCW code.

Assuming your Flag has adopted the IMO 1.27 Model course, Officers should have already completed an STCW 5 Day Generic Course Prior to this. Depending again on your Flags interpretation of Familiarisation or Type Specific, your crews may have also previously conducted other courses to satisfy ISM. This Competency Assurance Training is designed to:

·         Up to date every year with any changes to the make and model of the ECDIS onboard.

·         Understand the key functions for safe navigation.

·         Prepared for PSC or an independent audit or inspection.

·         Refreshed annually in their knowledge of key menus and operational capability of the ECDIS.

·         Company compliant in ECDIS through annual assessments.

Your Flag may have given guidance on Type Specific Training, or Ship Specific Training as it is referred to by the United Kingdom Maritime Coast Guard Agency.

By accepting these Terms and Conditions the buyer is acknowledging that they are content with  their Member State and ISM requirement.  This product will not be refunded should the buyer subsequently change their decision on what this product equates to.

As an example of member state requirement, elements of the current UK MIN which expires on 9th April 2019 is below.  The below shows the decision on what constitutes ship specific training is placed on the ship owner or operator.  Further guidance is provided.

MCA MIN 503(M)

3. ECDIS Ship Specific Training

3.1 ECDIS ship specific equipment training for Deck Officers must relate to the make and model of the equipment fitted onboard the ship which they are currently serving.

The decision on how to deliver ship specific training is now the responsibility of the ship owner or operator.

They must take into account their responsibilities in accordance with ISM code (specifically sections 6.3 and 6.5) and also the STCW convention, Regulation I/14 – 5:

ISM: 6.3 “The Company should establish procedures to ensure that new personnel and personnel transferred to new assignments related to safety and protection of the environment are given proper familiarization with their duties. Instructions which are essential to be provided prior to sailing should be identified, documented and given.”

ISM 6.5 “The Company should establish and maintain procedures for identifying any training which may be required in support of the safety management system and ensure that such training is provided for all personnel concerned.”

STCW Convention regulation I/14 – 5: Every company shall ensure that: “Seafarers, on being assigned to any of its ships, are familiarized with their duties and with all ship arrangements, installation, equipment, procedures and ship characteristics that are relevant to their routine or emergency duties”.

Refund Policy

This product is non refundable once any registered member within the Hull/Shipping Company/Fleet/Office either completes a course, is issued a certificate, or has access to the modules for over 30 days.

Mutual Agreement & Right to Cancel Accounts

If the company requires their crew to complete the courses via any method other than onboard (ie: via the company offices or building) the company must purchase a custom “Corporate Rate” for the courses. This is due to the fact that the current ACAT system is designed to be run and accessed via a hull-based system, and as such a mutual agreement that we trust you to only register crew members to their respective hulls. We will periodically check all accounts to ensure this agreement has been adhered to, if we find that an unreasonable amount of crew have been registered to any one hull, we are in our rights (after confirming this with you) to close your account without prior warning.

Alternative Company Rates

The alternative to a hull based system would be for the company to give access to crew via their company offices. In this situation we would require you to purchase a bespoke “Corporate Package” based on the fact that more than a reasonable amount of crew would have access to the course(s) via a “hull”. The cost of this package will be unique to each customer based on their own circumstances.
