Maritime Pilots

Creating a framework for vocational training qualifications of maritime pilots

Through CERTIPILOT, for the first time ever, it will be possible to take into consideration formal, informal and non-formal learning of the Maritime Pilots. Moreover, the issue of recognition of qualifications is addressed in a holistic manner, thereby, not focusing just on one specific training programme.

Project Partners


Co-operation between European Maritime Pilots

The Certipilot project is being co-ordinated by the Malta Maritime Pilots Cooperative with the cooperation of three European partners: Turkish Maritime Pilots Association, Colegio Oficial de Practicos de Puerto and Centro Studi Enti Locali Srl.


Project Description

A Mini-Documentary about the Certipilot Project

CERTIPILOT focuses on maritime pilots and the recognition of the qualifications acquired through vocational training. CERTIPILOT is formed by a partnership between three pilots' organisations and a training provider/VET expert. The project envisages also the active involvement of European pilots and their organisations through online consultation and exploitation actions. Finally CERTIPILOT will allow the recognition of vocational training undertaken by maritime pilots within the ECVET and EQF. Click on "more info" to view the 5-minute documentary.
