Certification of learning programmes

We provide verification that the programmes you offer are in compliance with our own and industry standards.

Do you need to demonstrate compliance of your training or learning programme to the industry or other stakeholders?

DNV SeaSkillâ„¢ provides certification of learning programmes to confirm their content and quality.

The certification of learning programmes ensures that:

  • Courses are well structured, learning objectives are clear and instructors have adequate competence
  • The required equipment and facilities for the course are available to give you a competitive edge on the market
  • The content complies with the relevant standards or guidelines (e.g., SIGTTO, IMO Model Courses, DNV Competence Standards)

If you offer a training course or programme in compliance with our own DNV-ST-0008 Learning Programmes and relevant industry standards, you can apply for DNV learning programme certification, which is valid for five years.

By having your learning programme certified by DNV , you are able to provide evidence of the suitability of your learning programmes to flag states or other stakeholders.
