Tanker operation certificates are issued only by the Danish Maritime Authority after having completed a course and the required seagoing service. Other certificates of proficiency are issued by our approved educational institutions
Record of service
Before applying for a certificate for which seagoing service is required, you must record your seagoing service via "Self-service".
Here, you can read more about seagoing service and find guidelines about how to record your seagoing service.
Apply online for your certificates
You must apply online for your certificates. This is the case in connection with the first issue, renewal, re-acquisition or if your certificate has gone lost.
When applying, you must have your NemID and your credit card at hand. We request a fee of DKK 855 for a certificate. You must attach a digital photo against a uniform background meeting the rules for passport photos; this is the case only for tanker operation certificates.
Apply for a certificate
At the moment, we need an average of five days to consider your application, but always remember to apply well in advance. Once you have applied, you will receive two emails. One confirming receipt of your application together with a case number, and one confirming receipt of your payment.
Should you have any questions or if you need to forward additional documentation for your case, you must answer the email received together with your case number.
In connection with future email enquiries, please leave out sensitive information, such as your social security number, since the internet connection is not encrypted. However, if you do submit documentation containing your social security number, please cover the last four digits.
