Register in time for further education & training courses


Rostock/connect career: As a result of COVID-19-related developments, the validity and issue of documents for seafarers will be facilitated with immediate effect. For example, certificates of competency that expire before September 1, 2020 will generally be extended by the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) by six months. In the case of failed refresher courses, certificates are normally renewed for a further five years if all other requirements for validity extension are met, but proof of participation in a refresher course must be provided within a period of six months of the documents being issued.

As a leading training provider in the maritime shipping industry, AFZ Rostock GmbH would like to point out that there may be an increased number of course requests within the deadlines. With a view to your personal time window, please secure your course participation already now so that all certificates can be issued in due time. By the way, you can register for the respective courses at S.T.A.R. Maritime ( at any time.
