Alphatron Marine Training Centre Doubles Simulator Capacity

Following its official certification to provide ECDIS Model course 1.27 training, the Alphatron Marine Training Centre in Rotterdam ordered a new classroom of NAUTIS ECDIS Simulators, doubling their current simulator training capacity.

n 2013, the training centre received the official “Letter of Recognition” from the Netherlands Shipping Inspectorate and became officially certified to perform ECDIS IMO Model course 1.27 for STCW (including Manila Amendments) and vessels under Dutch flag. Following this milestone the training centre has ordered a new classroom of NAUTIS ECDIS Simulators, doubling its current training capacity.

The Alphatron Training Centre uses NAUTIS Desktop ECDIS trainers for its certified ECDIS training and offers the complete range of ECDIS trainings. This includes generic as well as type specific training, or both in the same 5-day course in the HQ in Rotterdam. The training is executed on individual simulators and complemented with theoretical syllabi.

The NAUTIS Desktop ECDIS Trainers at the Alphatron Marine Training Centre are high performance portable simulators including a 120-degrees horizontal outside field as well as radar/ARPA view, type-approved MARIS ECDIS, and VHF communications trainer. The NAUTIS Desktop ECDIS Trainers are compatible with different types of ECDIS, including type-approved MARIS, Kelvin Hughes and PC Maritime Navmaster.Thanks to the high performance and small form factor of the NAUTIS Desktop Trainer, training becomes possible on any location, including on board of ships and in classrooms.

NAUTIS is a new generation of advanced DNV-certified maritime simulators developed by VSTEP and includes a full range of simulators, from desktop to full mission bridge.
