Train the Trainer courses in Sharjah, UAE
Consilium Middle East invited me to hold a Train the Trainer course on their premises in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. One of their customers wanted a training course covering both Consilium ECDIS and Consilium G2 ECDIS products. The four-day course introduced their customers to deep operations of the two products.
The following groups of personnel participated:
⁃ Company technical personnel
⁃ Company superintendents
⁃ Company training personnel
⁃ Consilium’s technical and sales personnel
Besides the typical Train the Trainer topics, this course placed a strong focus on regulations, especially the new features for mandatory implementation in 2017. Another important issue we highlighted was how to perform a practical implementation of the ECDIS product onboard, which typically includes subjects such as SMS Safety Management System, handling of ENC and ECDIS problems, change of bridge procedures and selection of technical options. These issues triggered interesting discussions among the participants.
It was especially nice to meet former colleagues and friends from Consilium, to observe their interest in and passion for the ECDIS products.
