Foreign masters obtain the necessary knowledge about Danish maritime legislation to work on board Danish vessels, cf. the educational requirements of the training programme for courses in Danish shipping legislation, ship administration and Occupational Safety and Health (§16) for foreign masters, version 2.0 of March 1, 2009. The relevant Danish maritime legislations, regulations and stipulations are covered during the course.

The Danish maritime legislation course for foreign masters either includes Occupational Safety & Health §16 or is run as an upgrading course for masters who have already completed §16 and Danish maritime legislation for senior officers.


Foreign masters who are going to serve on board Danish ships.

The participants must fulfill the qualifications to apply for Danish recognition of foreign certificates with the right to be master of ships registered in the Danish International Ship Register. Application must be made to the Danish Maritime Authorities. You can find "Guidance on procedures to be followed when applying for a Danish recognition certificate" here.

Virtual Classroom courses are online courses conducted by an instructor. This means that the participants can get feedback, ask questions and talk to each other as if they were sitting in the same room.


We have launched a new registration system for our courses.
