EMSA Academy launches new course on the Enhanced Maritime Picture using Integrated Maritime Services
A basic course has been designed and developed by the EMSA Academy to equip participants with the necessary skills to gain access and effectively use the Enhanced Maritime Picture via Integrated Maritime Services (IMS). This brand new course ensures participants have a solid grasp of the IMS operational capabilities, applicable data access rights, data sharing principles and the legal and governance framework. Via a set of interactive tools, videos, quizzes and other materials, participants will learn the basic functions of the SafeSeaNet Ecosystem (SEG) and the IMS App, and will be also introduced to Automatic Behaviour Monitoring tools. This online, basic course will support IMS authorities when familiarising new users to IMS. Organisations with staff rotation will benefit from the flexibility of the online resources. Maritime safety administration users working on shifts will be able to follow the course at their own pace without impacting working schedules. At the same time, occasional IMS/SEG users will have access to excellent refresher material.
