How do the instructor candidates obtain certification?

The instructor candidates will obtain certification by successfully completing:

  • An instructor training course at our training centre located in Copenhagen, Denmark.

  • A competency verification process by a FURUNO Maritime Training instructor, attending their initial training course, performed at your training facility.

The instructor training course covers advanced operation of the FURUNO ECDIS, combined with the principles of teaching and instructing trainees in English. The theory is extensively practiced through exercises, where the instructor trainee will take the role of the instructor.

Instructor certificates are valid for two years and the instructor may be recertified locally by a FURUNO Maritime Training instructor in connection with an audit.
