Why is your Passenger ship crowd management training not approved by the Dutch Maritime Authorities (Dutch Flag)?

The training institute "Rood Boven Groen" is approved by the Dutch Maritime authorities (Dutch Flag). During an audit the Dutch Flag reviewed the lesson plans and course contents of the training. A certificate for Passenger ship crowd management training is not issued due to the fact that neither the STCW Code, nor the Dutch legislation requires certification of these short courses.

I did not pass my exam, can I take it again?

If you do not pass the exam, you may read the content of the training again and start a new exam. You can take the exam up to a maximum of 3 times.
