In addition to Certificates of Proficiency, there are Certificates of Competency that show competence, for example, as master or ship's cook.
For information about revalidation requirements for Certificates of Competency and Certificates of Proficiency, please see page Revalidation of certificates .
The training required for issuance of Certificates of Competency (CoC) and Certificates of Proficiency (CoP) must be provided by a Maritime Education and Training (MET) provider approved by Finland. Mainly these approved MET providers are located in Finland. On the basis of training conducted not in Finland, a CoC or CoP is sought from the authority who approved that training, usually the maritime authorities of that country.
All required training needs to be under 5 years old unless otherwise specified.
