Revalidation of Certificates of competency

If your certificate of competency has expired, Aboa Mare arranges the following modules which support the revalidation of certificates of competency to deck/engine officers:

  • approved specialized training as specified by Aboa Mare
  • training intended for seafarers designated to provide medical first aid on board / maintain the medical chest (STCW A-VI/4-1 and STCW A-VI/4-2)

In addition you also need training in advanced fire fighting (STCW A-VI/3); such training is arranged e.g. by Meriturva Maritime Safety Training Centre.

If the certificate is still valid, you only need the medical training and fire fighting modules.


A certificate of competency issued by a competent authority in the European Economic Area (EEA) to a citizen of the EEA in accordance with the STCW Convention must be recognised. The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom) will issue an endorsement of recognition of the certificate of competency to an applicant on written application. Aboa Mare offers the applicants opportunity to prove their knowledge of Finnish legislation related to seafaring at the management level (master, chief officer, chief engineer officer and first engineer officer).
