Career opportunities

Once you have qualified as a skipper, you can move on to become a mate, master or supervisor on board a fishing vessel.

Once you have passed the exam for skipper (3rd degree), you may work as a mate on vessels of up to 45 metres in length on short voyages. After sailing as a mate for 12 months you may sail as a skipper (3rd degree).

This means that seniority counts.

As a skipper (3rd degree) you can complete supplementary training to become a deck officer (class III) or a skipper (1st degree) and/or master home trade.
