With the help of this website, we would like to prepare the next generation of inland navigation Skippers for more self-confident and effective ship management.
We have prepared many valuable materials.
That you have the opportunity to master the daily obstacles in a better and more secure way and to be prepared for the upcoming exams.
Recently, the number of tourists and cargo shipping has increased dramatically. All ships must be manned as quickly as possible, which is why there is a high demand for skippers.
Often, however, there are not enough qualified employees for the job. After all, it takes many years to become an Inland waterway Captain.
For example – you start out as a Light Sailor, Sailor, then you have to become a good Steerman, and finally, a Captain.
Due to the high demand for skippers, companies are forced to place the command in the hands of people who do not have the same training and practice as the older skippers.
Unfortunately, accidents occur more often due to insufficient practical experience in the respective position and route knowledge. That is precisely what we want to improve.
