This course is primarily designed for masters and chief mates but also for officers of the watch and explains, teaches and practices the operation of ships in polar latitudes.

It is based on experience and a basic course. It highlights the additional regulations and necessities that go beyond SOLAS and MARPOL to cope with polar specifics and risks. The course is based on the requirements according to STCW A-V/4-1 and 4-2.

After passing the test successfully the German Maritime Admiration will issue the Polar Code Basic and Advanced certificate. This is recognised by all flag states.
