Case Study 16: Provision of software training.

Location: Naples, Italy
Duration: 2 weeks


February 2014, RMS actively encourages training incentives for all our key personnel ensuring that our personnel and contractors continue their professional development. As a result RMS supported and sponsored a 2 week (back to back) Eiva Navisuite training course.

In this case two 6 day courses were run for the benefit of 20 experienced Italian freelance surveyors (10 per course) who until then, had not had the opportunity utilising the software suite. A blend of survey party chiefs, senior and junior surveyors, data processors, as well as GIS & CAD operatives attended these courses.


RMS arranged and supported the event in providing the lecturer, RMS In-house training materials and course attendance certification, software support (via Eiva in Denmark who kindly assisted with soft codes and other product support). Computers and topside surface navigation equipment with full interfacing were kindly provided by a locally based survey company to provide real time data I/O for the attendee’s interaction with the online navigation/ acquisition software (NaviPac, NaviScan and NaviEdit).


The qualified lecturer who delivered the course instruction & training – being an experienced and active Survey Party Chief/Hydrographic Surveyor and in particular an extensive user of the Eiva Navisuite in field, commented “The courses went really well, with all participants very satisfied with the knowledge they gained over the 6 days. Both courses ran equally smoothly and I look forward to the opportunity in running similar and hands on proactive training in the near future with RMS.
