Based on our customers' wishes we offer all radio operators a certified GMDSS AIS Course in collaboration with MARTEC, Maritime and Polytechnic University College.

Instead of a time consuming on-the-job training for several months - it is now possible to take the intensive 5-day technical course by MARTEC Maritime and Polytechnic College and become a certified radio surveyor. 

On the GMDSS AIS Surveyor Course both new and experienced radio surveyors will be taught in technical inspections of GMDSS and AIS installations. The participants:

  • are educated in the rules and regulations that applies to GMDSS and AIS installations.

  • learn how to perform the technical inspection of GMDSS and AIS installations by a Futronic GMDSS-AIS test box.

  • learn how to fill in the data for the surveyor report.
