PILOTAGE PRE-PLANNING GUIDE
1.3. Pilot Certification
All Pilots from DanPilot are fully certified according to all regulations, including
IMO resolution A.960. In the past, such certificate was carried by the Pilot as a physical
certification card, however this is no longer in existence. Any Pilot can verify
his/her certificate upon your request, and same is presented electronically from the
Danish Maritime Authority website, complete with photo identification and details
on the certificates held by the Pilot.
DanPilot’s internal simulator is used, among other things, for training transit and
the professional challenges faced by the pilots in their daily work. All pilots in Dan-
Pilot have completed this course, which are held at 3- or 5-year intervals as needed.
During the course, various focus points are chosen based on feedback from PnoX or
reportings. Examples of such focus points could be anchoring manoeuvres, change
of pilot in crowded waters or navigating with specific vessel types.
All courses, which are conducted in DanPilot’s internal simulator, have great focus
on knowledge sharing between pilots and debriefing where all course participants
are involved and contribute with input and questions. It is very important for Dan-
Pilot that these courses are as realistic as possible and take place in an interaction
with our customers in transit. Masters and first officers therefore always have an
open invitation to participate in such a course – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if
an opportunity arises.
Danpilot works with continuous improvements and knowledge sharing. A model
