Education and training

Danish Shipping and the maritime cluster as a whole need well-educated employees with the right skills.Thus, Danish Shipping has focus on education and training policy and the development of education in the maritime sector.

To increase the interest in maritime education, Danish Shipping works together with World Careers. The campaign helps to increase the visibility of a career in the Blue Denmark for young people in primary and lower secondary schools, as well as in upper secondary schools and vocational education. Danish Shipping also offers the international shipping education, 'The Commercial Shipping Program' at the Danish Shipping Academy.

It is, however, not only the young employees who need to be equipped for the future maritime labour market. Therefore, we also focus on the development of existing employees in the Danish shipping companies through the Danish Shipping Academy's §16 Safety and Health courses, as well as courses in Danish Maritime Legislation and employment law.
