Classic navigation using navigational paper charts is being replaced with ECDIS systems, and starting as from 2018, a complete transition to the PLECDIS system as the primary navigational system (eng. Paper – Less Electronic Chart and Display Information System – possessing information system and the display of electronic charts without the obligation of possessing paper charts) is planned. One of the difficulties arising during this transition period is the professional training of a large number of operators/marine officers for a proper utilization of different types of the ECDIS system and their accompanying tools offered on the market. Furthermore, a problem emerges concerning the professional training of certified ECDIS instructors for further candidate training for operating on various ECDIS system types. Aimed at solving the mentioned problems, this paper provides the existing standards of the ECDIS education, as well as suggestions for improving the ECDIS training with the emphasis on the Type Specific Training and ECDIS Instructor Training. Only a proper utilization of these systems can increase the level of safety of navigation and marine environment protection. The primary prerequisite for this purpose is high ECDIS instructors training quality and acquired knowledge and experience to transfer training to marine officers.
