There are a wide range of courses you can take once you have qualified as a fisherman. Some courses are mandatory, while others are voluntary.
As a minimum, you must complete a safety course to become a fisherman. But there are many other interesting courses that can help you enhance your skills,
such as courses in radio communication, fishing or managing the finances of the vessel.
If you choose specific courses and combine them with vocational experience, you can complete the fisheries’ basic training programme and earn The Blue Certificate.
Most courses are taken on board the new training ship, Athene. Learn more about Athene...
