The Course Department of Marstal Navigationsskole

Handling (manoeuvre) in simulator, ECDIS, relevant GMDSS courses, Transport of Dangerous Goods (IMDG), Heavy Lift/lashing, working environment on board (health and safety), Incident Investigation and Analysis, – and many more tailor made courses.

The course department at Marstal Navigationskole has existed since the beginning of the 1970-ies. In the beginning tanker courses were given as on-board training until tanker training was made mandatory by the STCW Convention – 1978. At that time Marstal Navigatinsskole had built its own shore based training facilities.

From time to time we still conduct on board training. The training is for instance ECDIS training and tanker safety training for companies wishing to brush up on general safety and to promote a common company safety policy, (the last 10 years: AP Moeller-Maersk, BP Gas tankers, Clipper, Eitzen, M.H. Simonsen, OW Bunkers, UniTankers, Wonsild).

We often give courses “out of the house” in connection with officers’ seminars or at similar occasions where a number of officers/seafarers are gathered.

For several years we have had success with short one or two days courses for operators and charterers of chemical tankers (also gas tankers). These courses are first of all to be regarded as a follow up on new legislation but it is also a good chance to discuss more practical subjects such as tankcleaning and care of tank coating etc.

Our courses can of course be given in English.

All our course instructors have a maritime background as navigators, radio operator or engineer. Most of the instructors also hold a supplementary education as teacher of navigation from Danish Technical University or similar universities. The instructors’ skills and competency are updated by participating in relevant courses, sailing as super numerous, participating in IMO-meeting as technical advisors for Danish Maritime Administration. Most instructors hold a valid certificate as master.
