In relation to type-specific ECDIS training, what is the shipping industry’s definition of “familiarisation “?

“Following the successful demonstration of competencies contained in the Generic ECDIS Training, familiarisation is the process required to become familiar with any onboard ECDIS (including backup) in order to assure and demonstrate competency onboard any specific ship’s ECDIS installation, prior to taking charge of a navigational watch.” (Industry Recommendations for ECDIS Training, January 2012)
