The unique USP of our FURUNO Classroom training is that this course is a simulator based training class and not on a computer based training module.
This simulator based training is a two-day intensive course that focuses both on the “technical” and “practical” aspects of being able to navigate through rough seas using a FURUNO ECDIS.
Students get real-time, hands-on experience on how to navigate, customize their FURUNO ECDIS on-board.
They are faced with “real-life” situations where they are taught skills on how to navigate through “turbulent seas” and even on how to “turn off” unwarranted alarms, using the ECDIS.
As paper charts become obsolete, the Type Specific ECDIS training is gaining more popularity with mariners and sea farers.
Most of our students enjoy being exposed to an actual simulator, vis-à-vis a computer screen and keyboard.
A. S. Moloobhoy and Sons Pvt. Ltd. has been rated as one of the “best training and testing facilities” in India, by our students.

Paying attention to Detail:
The FEA and FMD simulator-based training curricula has been approved by NavSkills and this facility is the only centre in India to be approved by FURUNO Maritime Training, on behalf of FURUNO, Japan.
Each student’s certificate comes directly from FURUNO, Japan and every student is entered into the FURUNO database, once they have successfully completed their exams and paperwork.
Upon successful completion of the coursework and upon passing the examination, students will be given an interim certificate from A. S. Moloobhoy and Sons Pvt. Ltd. until their final certificate is sent from FURUNO, Copenhagen (on behalf of FURUNO, Japan as mentioned above) on the postal and email address of their choice.
Upon expiration of this certificate, the student must come back to Moloobhoys or any other FURUNO Approved Institute of their choice, for re-certification.
Accreditation and Coursework:
Through small, interactive classrooms holding not more than 6-7 students, each student is given individual attention by the Instructor and examiner. Students are provided with state-of-the-art simulators and equipment, along with the latest in technology that will empower them to advance successfully in their careers as sea farers and chief mariners.
Our students have a detailed understanding of how the FURUNO Bridge System operates in its entirety and not just on how to operate an ECDIS.
