FIG/IHO/ICA IBSC stakeholder seminar on Training and Education

11 November 2015

The FIG/IHO/ICA International Board on Standards of Competence will be holding a stakeholder seminar on training and education in hydrography and nautical cartography in Cape Town, South Africa on Tuesday 24th November. The workshop will take place during the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies' Hydro2015 conference.

Reference will be made to the 'Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors' and the' Standards of Competence for Nautical Cartographers' and the recent developments, current and future efforts and the engagement of industry, institutions and regional groups will be covered. 

When looking for recognised courses for Hydrography and Nautical Cartography,

it's all too obvious that Africa is not served well. There are no current recognised courses across the continent.

The workshop offers an opportunity for academics, industry and potential students to gather and discuss the opportunities, what might be involved to develop an appropriate course and to get an update on the latest developments with regards to competencies.

The development of capacity to provide competent professionals across various sectors should be a priority for many, so all are welcome to attend and
