​​​In order to be issued with a certificate for yachtsmen, you must have completed a test that meets the requirements of the Danish Maritime Authority. The test must be arranged through an approved provider.

Approved providers have taken over the task of authorising external examiners for tests for yachtsmen. Therefore, you must contact an approved provider if you intend to register for or hold a test for yachtsmen. Also in the future, approved providers will issue most types of certificates for yachtsmen.

The Danish Maritime Authority administers the recording of those who have completed the tests. The Danish Maritime Authority will therefore keep a consolidated record of yachtsmen's tests; this recoding will be available to each individual yachtsman from "My page", where you need to log in by means of NemID. Not all recordings are shown at this point in time, but they are underway.

Approved providers

Approved providers can be approved to hold tests for all types of certificates for yachtsmen. At the same time, the Danish Maritime Authority will no longer keep a corps of external examiners and, therefore, it will no longer be possible to request an external examiner via the Danish Maritime Authority.

Consequently, you must direct all requests for external examiners in connection with the holding of tests for yachtsmen to the approved providers of tests and certificates for yachtsmen.

From the table on this page you can see who has been approved by the Danish Maritime Authority.
