Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (JRC) was approved by NK (ClassNK, Chairman & President Mr. Noboru Ueda) as the provider of ECDIS training course "type specific ECDIS training" on 16 April 2012.

ECDIS "type specific" training is the course for familiarization of operation of the ECDIS model in use onboard. Vessels are required to install and adopt ECDIS carriage over the next 6 years, both for newly built vessels and those existing, with the requirements due to come into force in July 2012.

The NK approval is applicable to type specific ECDIS training at our training room set-up in our factory in Tokyo.

We are very proud of being approved by NK who are taking business activities in the sake of enhancing business fields for human safety and marine environment conservation.
