From January 2018 onwards the HZS will be offering a STCW Management Level course. The course covers all competences as determined by the STCW 1978 convention and code, as amended.
Only those who have obtained the STCW Operational Level can start the course (more information about entry requirements).
On successful completion of the STCW Management Level course the trainee will receive the required certificates to sail as first officer or captain on all ship types excluding tankers. The course is recognized by the Belgian Federal Administration for Transport and Mobility. Keep in mind that in order to receive your certificate of competence you have to present your sailing time.
Due to the modular nature of the course, it is possible for the trainee to spread the course over several years. More details about the course program and registration .
