I have been working ashore now for 7 years. I started at this job when the company I was sailing for went bankrupt and I just sort of “stuck” to this job. I recently have decided that I want to go back to sea again.
My certificates for sailing as second mate are expired. For this I need to get 30 days of sea-experience. But I can’t figure out how long my DP-certificate is valid. Does it also expire after five years without sailing??
Any comments will be appreciated.
