Training started pre-2016

If you started training before 2016, we will continue accept approved training for the equivalent former Part 32 certificate, until the end of 2017. You will need to meet any sea service and ancillary proficiencies for the new SeaCert certificate, and pass the final examination.

Use this table to find out whether the training you have started before 2016 will be accepted towards a SeaCert certificate.

We will issue STCW95 certificates - valid until 31 December 2016, if your training did not meet the new competencies of STCW10.
If you’re not sure, please check with your training provider. You may need to complete additional training if you want to be issued a STCW10 certificate.
