Skippers Without Borders

Desptie the EU Single Market, there are no common rules across Europe for the training and certification of professional skippers and captains. On the contrary, the regulatory landscape is very fragmented as rules are only set at national level. One of the consequences is that professional qualifications from one Member State are not recognised by another, causing problems with recruitment, work mobility and lack of standards for profession.
