The duration of the course is 5 days.

We can also run courses for smaller groups of candidates at the request of clients.

Upon successful completion of the course, candidates will receive certificates.

The exercises are performed by professional and experienced lecturers with many years of maritime experience. The training can be performed during day or night and with different weather conditions, as we also have built lighthouses and wave simulators.


We do not have a time limit for the training!

Therefore the exercises are performed until the candidates have mastered them, all according to the teaching topics of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea – 1972, amended in 2018.
