Welcome to WECDIS.com, the online home of the naval ECDIS community. The term WECDIS stands for “Warship Electronic Chart Display and Information System” and is also known by some nations as ECDIS-N, where the N stands for “Navy”.
Having recently completed ECDIS Limited’s ECDIS Course I have adopted a different perspective and believe that ECDIS has the potential to provide suitable situational awareness, coupled with its other functionalities to assist in navigational safety and collision avoidance. ECDIS Limited’s ECDIS Course covers the legal aspects pertinent to the use of ECDIS for navigation; the different types of Charts and Electronic Chart Systems; and the data available from the system. The majority of the program however is dedicated to practical exercises, ensuring that a proper understanding of the system’s capabilities is achieved. Pleasant and knowledgeable course facilitators, ample and modern workstations, in comfortable surroundings allow for individualized, relevant training, in a relaxed environment
