The combination is aimed at foreign Captains and Officers from non-EU countries holding a valid STCW-certificate A-VI/4-2.

When you have passed your E-learning programme, you will have to complete our 3-day in-house training course within 12 months. After completion, you will receive a STCW-certificate for Danish flagged vessels.
