Cowie, H. Specialised requirements of the offshore oil industry has been a prime catalyst in the development of new technologies and control systems for vessels. Dynamic Positioning DP systems, originally developed for specialised navy recovery vessels, were quickly adopted on drilling ships, followed by diving support and offshore production vessels. Today, DP systems are common on many vessels serving the oil industry.
The course has been designed to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to stand watch on ships using ECDIS as their main navigation system. At the end of the course, trainees, after passing theoretical and practical tests, will obtain the ECDIS certificate, which is recognised by the General Directorate of the Merchant Marine. Maritime legislation : The course strictly follows the IMO 1. The practical exercises shall be conducted in two simulators at the Jovellanos Centre. During classroom lectures, the ECDIS simulator will be used to enable trainees to acquire the necessary skills in order to apply the knowledge that the instructor is providing in the classroom.

ECDIS also incorporates and displays information contained in other nautical publications such as Tide Tables and Sailing Directions and incorporates additional maritime information such as radar information, weather, ice conditions and automatic vessel identification. Updates to the ECDIS charts may reach the ship in various ways, depending upon the capabilities of the service provider and the onboard communication facilities. For ease of understanding, Indications may be either visual or audible whereas Alarms must be audible and may be visual as well. IT is only an aid to navigation and never replaces the human quotient which brings in the skill and expertise with experience that an ECDIS can never provide.

An ECDIS system displays the information from Electronic Navigational Charts ENC and integrates position information from position, heading and speed through water reference systems and optionally other navigational sensors. In recent years concerns from the industry have been raised as to the system's security especially with regards to cyber attacks and GPS spoofing attacks. ECDIS provides continuous position and navigational safety information. ENCs are vector charts that conform to the requirements for the chart databases for ECDIS, with standardized content, structure and format, issued for use with ECDIS on the authority of government authorized hydrographic offices.
