FURUNO NavSkills CAT (Computer Aided Training) training solution is the subscription-based service package dedicated for ship owners, who are looking to incorporate ECDIS familiarization training for models FEA-2107/FEA-2807 and FMD-3200/FMD-3300 into the in-house training scheme for their own navigators, hence making FURUNO ECDIS familiarization training more cost-effective and accessible. Once signed up for NavSkills CAT service subscription and set up the NavSkills CAT workstation delivered, FURUNO ECDIS familiarization training is readily available.
At the beginning of 2014, the FURUNO NavSkills CAT (Computer Aided Training) distant learning system has been approved by ClassNK as fulfilling the requirements for ECDIS familiarization training specified by the ISM code subsections of 6.3 and 6.5. ClassNK has evaluated the workstation and training software application, which are provided as part of the Computer Aided Training concept, as well as the training system support provided by FURUNO and verified that the training system meets the standards for contents and method for equipment familiarisation training.
NavSkills CAT service subscription includes everything needed for in-house ECDIS familiarization training for FURUNO ECDIS models FEA-2107/2807 and FMD-3200/3300. No further investment is required!
The subscription of the NavSkills CAT service includes:
No ordinary mouse and keyboard! The trainees are able to learn by using FURUNO NavSkills CAT ECDIS control units designed for training purpose, which employ fully functional, real user interface of the FURUNO ECDIS FEA-2107/2807 and FMD-3200/3300. This makes NavSkills trainees familiarized with the ECDIS they will be operating once assigned to a ship after completion of the course. *Inclusive of maintenance and upgrade of the training workstation
Training can be conducted at the offices of the ship owners, hence saving cost for transportation and accommodation for the trainees.

What is more, the trainees can access to the latest training programmes on the FURUNO training server at all times.
