In July 2020, we will replace the current Supplementary 4-day course in Denmark with a combined 6-hour E-learning Programme and a 3-day in-house training course.

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.

Course fee for both E-learning and in-house training is 4900 DKK.

What is a person in charge of medical care?

The concept originates from the British language (STCW). The person in charge of medical care is the person on board the ship who has been trained to provide advanced first aid and treatment in case of accidents and diseases. On board all ships flying the Danish flag, the master must, as a minimum, be trained as a person in charge of medical care.

What is the Centre for Maritime Health Service?

The Centre for Maritime Health Service (CMS) offers courses for persons in charge of medical care to the Danish merchant and fishing fleet.

The Centre offers services in the maritime-medico area for all ships flying the Danish flag.​​
