Top Student of the Month is unique to ECDIS Ltd and has become quite an accolade, students and their managers often feel proud achieving the highest mark out of all students in that calendar month and to know that they have the highest caliber users of ECDIS in their fleet.

The ECDIS Continuous Professional Development Log provides the professional deck officer with a practical, career-spanning record of shore and sea-going ECDIS training. While providing evidence of continuous training, these records are supported by two extensive sections containing question and answer aptitude tests for self-assessment.
The reference “CPD for 100 top students” must be quoted at time of booking to qualify.

Mark Broster, MD at ECDIS Ltd said “It has become tradition and a badge of honor within ECDIS Ltd for our top students. Now we are about to reach an impressive milestone of 100 plaques on the wall it gives us an opportunity to look back and celebrate. The leather bound, Filofax-feel of the ECDIS CPD Log is a useful means of maximizing retention of knowledge.”
Robyn Harrigan, Training and Production Manager pointed out “We have been awarding Top Student of the Month since our first ECDIS Generic course. Seeing these wheels fill up and even having to mount the latest plaques on a new “ship’s plank” is astonishing. Now we can also feel, as instructors, with the ECDIS CPD Log offer the students will leave us with the right tools in hand to practice and keep familiarization and competency levels high.”
