SIMAC: Danish Maritime Legislation for foreign senior officers, Long distance


The “Danish Maritime Legislation” course ensures that foreign senior officers or Masters acquire knowledge of Danish maritime legislation in order to qualify them to work on Danish ships.

The course is intended for individuals with a foreign certificate of competency who will be serving on ships registered in Denmark in positions such as Master, chief officer, chief engineer, or first engineer.

To qualify for admission, the participant must have received confirmation of acceptance for future employment by the shipping company.

This course is an e-based distance learning course. Alternatively for larger groups of participants, the instructor will teach the course at a location of your choice.

The course can be carried out in connection with the §16 Safety and Health Working Environment for members of the safety group. The course participant saves one course day by taking these two courses combined, and the total duration is reduced from five to four days.

  • The course fee will not be refunded in case of your cancellation
  • Additional tests cost DKK 1.500,00 per test
